There have been 14 additional instances of coronavirus in New Zealand, carrying the aggregate to 53. On Saturday, the Ministry of Health has confirmed that the Covid-19 cases have risen to 53 from 39.

Four of the cases are in Wellington, one in Taranaki, three in Auckland, one in Waikato, one in Taupo, one in Manawatu, and two in Nelson, Director-General of Health Dr. Ashley Bloomfield reported today.

A large portion of the cases are travel-related; however, two instances 

connected to abroad head out presently can’t seem to be resolved, he said. 

“We can’t preclude a danger of network transmission in these cases,” Dr. Bloomfield said. 

“A reminder that self-isolation does not mean social isolation; physical distancing does not mean social distancing. It’s essential for mental wellbeing that we stay connected more than ever. There are many ways to reach out to people. Through phones, social media, and online contact, even if you cannot visit them in person.”

“Talking to people and checking in on them and others keep us all connected and as I say this is more important than ever.”

“The smallest and largest question you can ask someone is, Are you okay?” Dr. Bloomfield said. 

Further subtleties on the new cases will be made accessible on the Ministry of Health site as they are finished.
