There are two new additional cases of COVID-19 to report today including the case announced last night.

Of the two new additional cases reported today, one involves the second managed isolation worker in Christchurch, which is being formally added to today’s total.

One is a recent arrival case from managed isolation, and the third is a recently identified historical case. 


Today’s recently arrival arrived from Singapore on October 31 and tested positive at around day 3. They are now in quarantine at our Auckland facility.

Today’s historical case arrived in New Zealand on October 18 from Japan, and they tested positive at around day 12. Subsequent negative repeat PCR tests, high CT values and positive serology mean we can now be confident this is not a case involving a recent infection.

5 cases have been considered as recovered, meaning the total number of active COVID-19 cases is 73.

The total confirmed COVID-19 cases are now at 1,615. This is the number that the Ministry of Health reports to the World Health Organisation.

There is no one in the hospital with COVID-19 in New Zealand.

Laboratories yesterday processed 7,171 tests, bringing the total number of tested completed to date to 1,113,739.

There are now 2,338,900 users registered on NZ COVID Tracer app.

The app has recorded a total of 106,235,257 poster scans, and users have created a total of 4,433,681 manual diary entries.
