Covid 19 coronavirus: Will it be seven days straight without a community case?

Can we make it a week without a case of Covid-19 in the community?

The Ministry of Health is due to give an update on the latest situation surrounding Covid-19 in New Zealand shortly.

The update will come via a statement. There is no live press conference planned for today.

If there are no community cases today, it will be seven days straight since a community case was reported in our country.

Health officials yesterday announced that there were two new cases of the virus in managed isolation.

The first was a person who arrived from Paris – via Dubai and Kuala Lumpur – last Friday, October 23.

The second person touched down from London – via Dubai and Kuala Lumpur – on the same day.

Both tested positive to Covid-19 around day three of their time in managed isolation and were then transferred to the dedicated quarantine facility in Auckland.

Officials also revealed yesterday that four people had since recovered from the virus – taking the total number of active cases in New Zealand to 66.
