There are two new imported cases of COVID-19 to report New Zealand today.
There are no cases to report in the community.
The first case that is imported, arrived from Paris (via Dubai / Kuala Lumpur) on October 23.
The second case is a person who arrived from London (via Dubai / Kuala Lumpur) on the same date.
Both of the cases were identified during day 3 testing of their time in managed isolation and have since been transferred to Auckland’s quarantine facility.
Four other cases have recovered which brings the total number of active COVID-19 cases to 66.
The total confirmed COVID-19 cases remain at 1,587. 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 3,335 tests, bringing the total number of tests processed to date to 1,075,827.
A total of 757,592 scans were recorded yesterday on the NZ COVID Tracer app, which shows the increase in scans that were seen over Labour weekend and it has continued.
“It is encouraging that New Zealanders are responding to the call to get back into the habit of scanning codes with the app, but we still have a way to go to get back to the level of usage seen in early September,” said the Ministry of Health in a statement.
“Thank you to everyone scanning everywhere they go – keep up the good work and don’t be shy to encourage others to scan, too.”
