    Today there are 7 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 to report and all are related to the cluster in Auckland. All are Auckland based. There are no new imported cases. Out of the 7 community cases, 2 are linked to a church in Auckland and 2 are household contacts. 1 previously reported case is now considered recovered, the total number of active cases in New Zealand 129 - of which 19 are imported cases in quarantine. This brings our total number confirmed cases of 1,339. We will report this to the World Health Organization. There are 8 people receiving hospital level care for COVID-19 all are part of the Auckland community cluster. There are two patients in North Shore Hospital, one is stable in isolation on a ward (connected to the community cluster), one is critical in ICU. Credit NZ Herald There are four patients with COVID-19 in Middlemore Hospital. Two are stable and each of these is in isolation on a ward. Two are in ICU and are in critical condition. These are the same four patients previously reported and are all part of the community cluster. There are now 160 people linked to the cluster, they have moved into Managed Quarantine facility in Auckland and that includes 89 people who have returned positive tests as well as household contacts. Testing Yesterday testing numbers dropped below 5,000 and DHBs are beginning to report signs of testing fatigue amongst the public. We need to continue our testing efforts and we need the cooperation of all New Zealanders in that process. Use of masks on public transport.  Making masks mandatory is based on the best evidence of medical and scientific experts. This allows us to reopen our economy a bit more while we continue to work to stamp out the virus.     There is plenty of time to prepare for this - more details to come on Thursday around the use of masks. There is a range of support within the community. We would like to acknowledge the efforts and sacrifice of all New Zealanders, and Aucklanders in particular during this time. - Unite Against Covid 19   Receive these news posts and safety alert by registering at www.lert.info
