Please note, the Ministry of Health’s daily reported cases may differ slightly from those reported at a DHB or local public health unit level. 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.
- Today’s reported deaths take the total number of publicly reported deaths with COVID-19 to 1,522 and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 13.
- Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; two were from Northland, three were from the Auckland region, three were from Waikato; one was from Bay of Plenty; one was from Hawke’s Bay; two were from the Wellington region; one was from Nelson-Marlborough; four were from Canterbury; and two were from Southern.
- Two people were in their 50s; three were in their 60s; one was in their 70s; six were in their 80s; and seven were aged over 90. Of these people, 11 were women and eight were men.
- 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.
