The Delta Variant may be peaking on Day Eight of lockdown

Move in levels tomorrow; but Auckland likely to remain at Level Four

Wellington, Auckland, 26, 2021

Key things to note:

There are 68 new cases of Covid-19 in the community with a total of 277 cases; of these 263 are in Auckland and 14 in Wellington.

The majority of new cases reported yesterday and today were living in the same household as a known case, so transmission is often occurring within household bubbles.

Yesterday, 41,739 Covid tests were processed across New Zealand. Testing centres in Auckland had another busy day with more than 20,000 swabs taken across the city. 

For up-to-date information on all testing locations, please visit Healthpoint.

Christchurch Wastewater Samples

Christchurch wastewater samples have returned a positive result. This is consistent with virus shedding by the three positive cases in managed isolation facilities there.  All other South Island sites are negative.

As of 9 am today, 24,402 individual contacts have been identified and 71% have had a test.

There are now nearly 500 locations of interest listed on the Ministry of Health’s website

If you were at a location of interest at the specified time, please self-isolate and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on testing.
