Covid 19: Three new cases today in managed isolation”

The Ministry confirmed it was investigating a suspected historical case of Covid-19, detected in a crew member on the IVS Merlion, which is now docked in the Port of Tauranga.

Stuff understands the man works at Wright Technologies in Albany. We are awaiting further results from other tests, including serology. Its sole director, Colin Mitten, declined comment, as did staff at the company.

Wright's has offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Sunday's case is a marine electronics engineer who boarded the Ken Rei while it was in New Plymouth to conduct maintenance work.

The port said it was notified this morning that the vessel was on its way from Taranaki.

"This is a case that shows our systems...are working...we have a clear line of investigation", Bloomfield says. The test gave a weakly positive result, which, according to the ministry, indicates an old infection.

The Sofrana Surville was anchored off the Sunshine Coast on Tuesday afternoon.

However, after testing positive around day 12 of their stay, they were transferred to Auckland's quarantine facility, Jet Park.

On Friday, he was tested again after developing symptoms.

It was revealed on Sunday the port worker had tested positive for the disease.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield moved to allay public fears of another outbreak on Monday, saying the new case in the community was a new "border incursion" and not linked to the Auckland August cluster or any other previous cases. This person tested positive as part of routine day 3 testing, the statement said. The port is embroiled in discussions with public health officials and the owners of the ship about next steps for the crew, who might sail on to Auckland or be visited offshore by health officials.

There are now 2,311,100 users registered on the NZ Covid Tracer app.
