There have been no new cases of COVID-19 reported in New Zealand for the eighth straight day, with just one active case still remaining in the country.

After a week of no new cases, the number of active cases dropped to one yesterday.

The total number of confirmed cases remains at 1154. The combined total of confirmed and probable cases is 1504.

Nobody is in hospital with the coronavirus, and there have been no further deaths.

There were 3020 tests processed yesterday, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 278,872.

The Ministry of Health says 12,000 more people had signed up for the NZ COVID Tracer app, and there are now 458,000 registrations.

"We continue to encourage as many people as possible to download the app - it will help us identify, trace, test and isolate any cases of COVID-19.

"We also recognise the work being done by businesses to get their unique QR codes up and running, and we will provide updated figures on this tomorrow."
