COVID-19 cases in the Bay of Plenty
The number of COVID-19 cases in the Western Bay of Plenty has risen by two since yesterday.
Today Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfied announced there are 82 new cases of the virus in New Zealand.
This is made up of 52 confirmed cases and 30 probable cases, he says.
Of those cases, 30 are in the Bay of Plenty District Health Board area and 11 are in the Lakes District Health area.
The number of confirmed and probable cases in the Western Bay of Plenty is 29, up two from yesterday.
The other districts remain unchanged with one case in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, seven in Rotorua and four in Taupo.
The BOPDHB covers the western and eastern Bay of Plenty, while the Lakes DHB covers Rotorua and Taupo.
"For privacy reasons, neither the Bay of Plenty District Health Board nor Lakes District Health Board are able to provide any further details on any COVID-19 inpatients," says a Bay of Plenty District Health Board spokesperson.
"Thank you for your understanding. We’re all in this together."
These figures are updated daily following the Ministry of Health’s daily public update.
The total number of confirmed and probable cases in New Zealand is now 950.
There are 127 people who have recovered from the virus, Ashley says.
He says the number of new cases appears to be levelling off now and The Health Ministry is becoming increasingly confident that the lockdown is working.
