What will happen in New Zealand?

New Zealand’s cases are primarily due to overseas travel, meaning the increase in cases seen here is still due to how many people are arriving with Covid-19, not how it is spreading in New Zealand.

The others were hospitalised in Wellington (three), Nelson (two), Whangarei (two) and one each in Auckland, Waikato, Taranaki, Dunedin and Greymouth.

Stuart-Black said there were five known “clusters” of people with coronavirus in New Zealand.

Over a seven-day period, the average number of daily tests for coronavirus was 1613. Stuart-Black said people who had been tested should remain in self-isolation.

She urged people to be kind to each other.

She said there had been reports of online abuse towards people who have Covid-19 and that was not acceptable: “We need to look out for each other now more than ever.”

All of Government Controller John Ombler said the Government was “very pleased” with how most New Zealanders were behaving during the lockdown.

“It’s only been two days since we have been living this new way of life.”

He said most people were following the new rules – but there had been a few reports of people congregating.

He reiterated it was important for people to remain at home: “Stick to your bubble”.

“Stay local,” he said, adding that people should stay within their neighbourhood.

He had heard reports of people playing touch rugby and said “that’s just stupid; don’t do it”.

He called on people to avoid public space and not to go to a second home, or a bach.

Ombler said there had so far been no arrests related to breaching the lockdown.
