More than 8000 new Covid cases reported today

People are advised to stay home and rest if they have cold or flu symptoms.

Today, the Ministry of Health is reporting 8028 new Covid community cases, 383 current hospitalisations, and 16 deaths.

The seven-day rolling average of community case numbers has increased today and is 5480 – last Tuesday it was 4878.

The increase in case numbers today is not unusual after a long weekend, says a spokesperson for the Ministry of Health.

"It will take more time before we are able to determine if this is part of a trend."

In addition to the increased cases today, the Ministry is reporting the deaths of 16 people with Covid-19.

All these deaths occurred within the past seven days.

They take the total number of publicly reported deaths with Covid-19 to 1488 and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 12.  

"Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; four were from the Auckland region, two were from Waikato, two were from Hawke’s Bay, one was from MidCentral, two were from Taranaki, one was from Wairarapa, one from Wellington, two were from Canterbury, and one was from the Southern region.

"One person was aged between 10 and 19 years, three were in their 70s, six were in their 80s and six were over 90. Of these people, 11 were male and five 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."

Nearly 300 cases a day in BOP.

This is not over yet, despite us wanting it to be. I’m keeping a mask in my pocket and using it if I see risk... Separation is just a sensible precaution.
