Gidday. Paragraph 4 states 15 positive and 4 probable cases. This is normally expressed as 19 new cases in NZ. Needs consistency.

I saw a combined total of 40... "Number of confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in: Western Bay of Plenty*: 40" Did I miss something?

Hmmmm

I see probable numbers and positive numbers are now being split. Is this to make it sound better?
