“Cases 1-4 are in a travel bubble together,” says a MOH statement.

“As is our standard protocol, any cases detected after day three are investigated further.”
 

Melbourne

The original cohort of travellers from Melbourne now sits at 4,789.

Of those 4,789 travellers:
· 1,626 require no further action as they have returned to Australia or have reached the 14-day post exposure date
· 2,933 have returned a negative test result
· 203 are exempt from testing because they are under the age of 12
· 27 have no test result as yet.

“Contact tracers have emailed and twice called each of these 27 travellers and will be recording test results as and when they are logged,” says a MOH statement.

“If a negative test result is logged, they are removed from this list and added to the number of people who have already returned a negative test result.”

Of 371 crew members related to the Melbourne outbreak 239 have returned a negative test result. A further 132 crew members have either no result as yet or require no further action

Testing information
The total number of tests processed by laboratories to date is 2,171,925.

On Sunday, 2,101 tests were processed and on Monday, 1,893 tests were processed with the seven-day rolling average at 4,076.

This testing data does not include the number of tests processed by Waikato DHB, as systems remain down as a result of the cyber-attack.

“The Waikato data continues to be recorded manually and monitored,” says the MOH.

“The data will be added to the tally once systems have been restored.”

So far the manual data is showing an average of around 200 tests processed per day since 17 May.
