"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," says the MOH.

"The Waikato data continues to be recorded manually and monitored. The data will be added to the tally once systems have been restored.

"The manual data shows Waikato has this week been processing about 300 tests a day."
