There are four new cases of COVID-19 to report in managed isolation in New Zealand. 

The Ministry of Health says there are no new cases in the community.

Of the new border cases:

Arrival date: 6 January

  •   •  One case arrived from Russia via Singapore and tested positive during routine testing around day 3. This person is in a quarantine facility in Christchurch.

  •   •  One case arrived from Russia via Singapore and tested positive during routine testing around day 0. This person is in a quarantine facility in Christchurch.

  •   •  One case arrived from Russia via the United Arab Emirates and tested positive during routine testing around day 3. This person is in a quarantine facility in Christchurch.

Arrival date: 9 January

  •   •  One case arrived from the United Kingdom via the United Arab Emirates and tested positive during routine testing around day 1. This person has been transferred to the Auckland quarantine facility.

The Ministry of Health says one case has now recovered and one previously reported case is now regarded as not a case.

"This case previously tested positive in the United Kingdom prior to travelling to New Zealand and has therefore been determined as a historical case. This case is being removed from New Zealand’s tally while we confirm it has been reported in the United Kingdom." 

The total number of active cases in New Zealand is now 77.
