Crowds rally in New Zealand's Auckland against coronavirus lockdown

Crowds rally in New Zealand's Auckland against coronavirus lockdown”

New Zealand reported three new imported Covid-19 cases on Tuesday, all now being treated at a managed isolation facility, according to the Health Ministry.

There are 56 people linked to the community cluster who remain in the Auckland quarantine facility.

The findings reinforce that exposure at the Jet Park is the most likely cause of transmission, says the Ministry of Health, but exactly how the worker contracted COVID-19 will be investigated by the Public Health Unit.

He's confident it wasn't a case simmering in the community, and believes it must have come through the border somewhere.

"We would also like to sincerely thank all healthcare professionals who choose to work in our managed isolation and quarantine facilities, they are a critical part of New Zealand's response to COVID-19".

The move, however, is contingent on no COVID-19 cases appearing outside of Auckland between now and then.

There were 4402 tests conducted yesterday, and all but seven of the 3779 close contacts identified for the current outbreak have been reached and are self-isolating. Two cases are in the ICU at North Shore Hospital and Waikato Hospital.

The number of active cases has reached 83 in New Zealand.

On Saturday, New Zealand reported two new cases of the novel coronavirus, bringing its total number of infections since the start of the year to 1,444.

"The question is whether it happened through a casual contact at the airport or port, or whether it happened at a managed isolation facility".

Ardern, speaking from Dunedin after a virtual Cabinet meeting on Monday, said the aim was to move "speedily down" alert levels, but the director-general of health had advised a short extension of current restrictions. Health officials are in the process of contacting the remainder.

"Modelling done for the Ministry of Health continues to suggest around a 25 percent chance of cases moving outside of the Auckland region". As of Monday, 368,745 QR codes have been created to be displayed by businesses nationwide.

The nurse is the person who went to three Les Mills classes in Takapuna last week without knowing she had the virus.
