Today’s reported deaths include 23 deaths recorded in June and one death recorded in May. They take the total number of publicly reported deaths with Covid -19 to 1,455 and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 12. 

“Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; six were from the Auckland region, three were from Waikato, three were from Hawke’s Bay, one was from Bay of Plenty, three were from Taranaki, one was from Wairarapa, one was from the Wellington region, two were from Nelson-Marlborough, three were from Canterbury, and one was from Southern.”

One person was in their 50s, one was in their 60s, four were in their 70s, 11 were in their 80s and seven were aged over 90. Of these people, 13 were male and 11 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.”

This update includes the figures for yesterday because there was no statement due to the Matariki public holiday.

This is because of different reporting cut off times and the assignment of cases between regions, for example when a case is tested outside their usual region of residence. Total numbers will always be the formal daily case tally as reported to the WHO.
