In a statement, the Health Ministry said the reclassified case had now recovered.

The number of active cases is now 70.

The Ministry said all day six testing for the international fishing crew had now been completed, with no further positive results to report.

The total number of confirmed cases in this country is now 1579.

There were 11 new cases of the coronavirus reported yesterday – all in managed isolation.

There were 5396 Covid-19 tests completed yesterday, and the Ministry said this was a “strong weekend figure”.

“Testing has also been pleasing in the Auckland area, with metropolitan DHBs reporting steady demand at the region’s seven community testing centres, where 633 people were swabbed yesterday.

There are seven community testing centres in Auckland that will remain open today and tomorrow – Northcote Community Testing Centre, Northcare Accident and Medical, Whānau House in Henderson, Western Springs Community Testing Centre, the Whānau Ora Community Clinic in Wiri, the Otara Community Testing Centre, and the North Harbour stadium carpark in Albany.

The Ministry said it was also encouraging to see the number of poster scans on the Covid Tracer app had almost doubled compared to last Wednesday.

“The more we scan, the safer we’ll be. The faster we respond, the faster we stop Covid-19.”
