The Ministry of Health is reporting 17 new Covid-19 cases in managed isolation in the last two days.

In a statement released this afternoon, the ministry says there are no new community cases.

“The seven-day rolling average of new cases detected at the border is four,” says a ministry spokesperson.

See below for a table of where the new cases have come from.

An additional four people have now recovered, meaning there are now a total of 74 active cases in New Zealand.
The total number of confirmed cases is 2168.
Since January 1, there have been 43 historical cases, out of a total of 356 cases.

“Today’s managed isolation case numbers underscore the value of having in place the day 0/1 testing as 13 out of the 17 cases were identified with this testing,” says the Ministry of Health.

“All people arriving in New Zealand must remain in their rooms until those day 0/1 test results come back.

“It’s also not uncommon to see some of the day 0/1 cases to be reclassified as historical cases, which are not infectious.

“While the number of cases in managed isolation over the last 2 days is higher than in previous days, the average number of cases per day over the past week remains steady at four. Some of these cases are also contacts of known cases.”

In addition to day 0/1 testing, in January, the Government announced it is extending pre-departure testing to all passengers to New Zealand except from Australia, Antarctica and most Pacific Islands, as a measure to further strengthen New Zealand’s border response.
