Dr Ashley Bloomfield is giving the latest on Covid-19 cases in New Zealand and an update on how the contact-tracing system is working.

Watch the update here:

  • If you have symptoms of the coronavirus, call the NZ Covid-19 Healthline on 0800 358 5453 (+64 9 358 5453 for international SIMs) or call your GP – don’t show up at a medical centre

Ministry of Health figures show targets for getting 80 percent of contacts of people with Covid-19 in isolation within four days of being exposed to the disease were not being met. However contact-tracing teams are far exceeding the goal to reach 80 percent of an infected person’s contacts within 48 hours, reaching 95 percent on average.

Two inmates and 20 Corrections staff at Auckland Prison at Paremoremo were in isolation, after the household contact of a staff member tested positive for Covid-19.
