There is one new case of Covid-19 recorded in New Zealand today, in managed isolation.
The Ministry of Health reported the numbers via statement today, confirming there was no new cases in the community today.
Yesterday, the Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said a port worker who was reported to have contracted Covid-19 two days ago likely got the virus from “a new border incursion”, according to genome sequencing.
The case was initially reported as potentially coming from the community.
The strain of the man’s virus had not been seen in New Zealand before, and Bloomfield confirmed the case was not connected to Auckland’s August cluster.
