There are two new confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported in New Zealand today. 

A written statement issued by the Ministry of Health says one case is linked to the St Margaret’s Hospital & Rest Home in Auckland and the other is a person who has travelled back from overseas. 

There have been no further deaths. 

The case linked to the St Margaret’s Cluster is not a healthcare worker. 

“They are a household contact of an earlier case linked to St Margaret's. They have been in self-isolation since that case was notified,” says the statement. 

Today’s cases bring New Zealand’s combined total of confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases to 1,494.

There are 1,371 people reported as having recovered from COVID-19, an increase of 3 on yesterday. 

This is 92 per cent of all confirmed and probable cases.

There are two people in hospital with COVID-19 – one each in Middlemore and North Shore hospitals. Neither is in ICU.

“We still have 16 significant clusters, four of which are now closed.”
