Covid cases in Whakatīwai counted as part of today's 22 new cases

Yesterday's news of three new cases in Whakatīwai have been counted in today's 22 new community cases.

The new cases bring the total number of active cases in the outbreak to 377.

This comes just as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her cabinet consider whether Auckland will move down alert levels. She will announce their decision at 4pm.

The three cases recorded in Whakatīwai fall within the Counties Mānakau DHB catchment and are being counted in the Auckland total.


Dr Rawiri Taonui: Delta outbreak | Auckland Alert Level 3?

By Māori health researcher Dr Rawiri Taonui, in partnership with Te Ao Māori News

Yesterday, there were 24 new cases in the Delta outbreak. The total number of cases is now 1,050. Thirteen people are in hospital care and four in ICU. Recovered cases rose to 688; active cases dropped to 362.

Just over 78% of age-eligible Aucklanders have received at least one vaccination. Last night, the Ministry of Health notified three new cases in the Waikato. Associated with the case in Mt Eden Prison, the Ministry will add them to today’s total.
