Zero new cases today in New Zealand


There are no new cases of coronavirus in New Zealand today and Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield says he wants to keep it that way.

It is the first time in close to six weeks that testing has not uncovered a single case across a 24 hour period.

There are no additional deaths to report and the death toll remains at 20. The total number of cases is 1487. One probable case had since been upgraded to confirmed but that does not change the total number of cases. There are four people in hospital.

“Clearly these are encouraging figures today but it is just one moment in time,” Bloomfield said.

It is cause for celebration and it was symbolic of the effort that everyone had put in, Bloomfield said.

“This is the first day we’ve had no new cases and we want to keep it that way.” US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
