Covid-19: 7829 new cases, 15 deaths

There have been two deaths reported in the Bay of Plenty today.

Today, there are reporting 7829 community cases, 395 current hospitalisations, and 15 deaths.

The seven-day rolling average of community case numbers today is 5808 – last Wednesday it was 4873, says the daily statement from the Ministry of Health.

"The higher number of cases in the last two days, compared to last week, is not unusual after a long weekend. It will take more time before we are able to determine if this is part of a trend."

Covid-19 deaths

Today, the Ministry is reporting the deaths of 15 people with Covid-19. All these deaths occurred within the past nine days.

They take the total number of publicly reported deaths with Covid-19 to 1503 and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 12.  

Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; three were from the Auckland region, one was from Waikato, one was from Lakes, two were from Bay of Plenty, two were from Taranaki, one was from the Wellington region, one was from Nelson Marlborough, one was from Canterbury, one was from West Coast, and two were from the Southern region.

One person was in their twenties, one was in their fifties, five were in their 70s, three were in their 80s and five were over 90. Of these people, six were male and nine were female.

"This is a very sad time for whānau and friends and our thoughts and condolences are with them. Out of respect, we will be making no further comment on these deaths," says a Ministry spokesperson.
