There are three new cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand today, all in managed isolation.
There was no 1pm media conference but in a statement today the Ministry of Health said there are 40 active cases of the coronavirus in the country.
There are no new community cases.
The three returnees include one person who arrived from Romania via Qatar and Brisbane on 3 November and is a contact of three previously confirmed cases; one who arrived from Dubai on 15 November; and one who arrived from Qatar via Brisbane on 17 November.
The total number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand is now 1657.
There were 9292 Covid-19 tests processed yesterday and the ministry said this was a good number of daily tests.
“It reflects the commitment of New Zealanders to getting tested, and also the hard work of those involved in taking and processing the tests.
“We continue to encourage anyone who visited a location of interest during the relevant time period for the November cluster to get tested – to ensure we can quickly identify anyone who may have been infected.”
The ministry said it would keep two pop-up testing facilities in central and east Auckland going. Both locations are walk-in and do not require a pre-booked appointment.
