There are no new cases in the community to report today.

There are four new positive cases of Covid-19 to report in managed isolation since the Ministry of Health's media statement on Monday.

The seven-day rolling average of new cases detected at the border is eight, says the MOH in a statement released this afternoon.

"The number of previously reported cases that have now recovered is two. The total number of active cases in New Zealand today is 102.

"Our total number of confirmed cases is 2231.

"Since January 1, there have been 44 historical cases, out of a total of 415 cases."

Update on border-related cases

Testing continues for the contacts of Cases B and C. Case C is a contact of Case B, as the two people work together at the Grand Millennium managed isolation facility.

Jointly, the cases have 23 contacts. 21 out of the 23 contacts have returned negative test results.

Two results remain outstanding.

Locations of interest update

The locations of interest page on the Ministry of Health website has been updated.

This includes the addition yesterday afternoon of three Auckland bus journeys taken by Case B, says the MOH.

"Regional public health officials report Case B wore a mask and sat away from other passengers while on the bus journeys.

"Those on the bus are considered casual contacts."

The journeys — including date, times and actions for other passengers — are listed on the Ministry’s website.

Further information can be found on the Auckland Regional Public Health Service website.

A reminder for those at locations of interest during the time and date of the exposure events, please follow the public health advice alongside the event.

Casual contacts are required to monitor for any symptoms. If you begin to feel unwell or develop any Covid-19 symptoms, contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453, get tested and stay at home until a negative test result is received.

Even the WHO say that at least a third of people with the virus have zero symptoms. We are still getting people in MIQ testing positive beyond Day 10. We have a big gap in between the two border workers testing positive, indicating an unknown case was the link and has been out and about. To suggest we do not have it in “the community” is pure BS. We do, they know we do. But they need to keep up the game as it provides a means to control minds. Provides a platform for Her Majesty.
