He wahine i ōna tau iwa tekau te pakeke kua mate whai muri i tōna oranga ake i te mate Korona.

Ko te kōrero a te Kaiwhakahaere Hauora Matua, a Tākuta Ashley Bloomfield, ko te wahine kua mate, ko Eileen Hunter, he kainoho i te Whare Kaumātua o St Margaret's i Te Atatū.

“She was much loved by all those who knew her. She was confirmed as having COVID-19 in mid-April and had been transferred from St Margarets to Waitākere Hospital and then to North Shore Hospital for care.”

I whakatūturuhia tōna oranga ake i ngā whakamātautau e rua, ka whakahokia ia ki te Whare Kaumātua o St Margarets, e ai ki a ia.

“The family has asked the ministry to pass on their thanks for the care of their mother at St Margarets and Waitākere Hospitals and in turn I’d like to extend our sympathy to her family for their loss.”

Hei tā Tākuta Bloomfield, ehara ko te mate Korona te take i mate ai ia e ai ki tana tiwhikiete mate.

“However, after consideration, we have decided to include her death in our overall tally of COVID-19 related deaths consistent with our inclusive approach to date so that we have got a good idea of the full impact of this condition on our health and wellbeing on New Zealand."

Nā konā, ko te katoa o ngā mate whai pānga ki te urutā i Aotearoa nei kua eke ki te 22.

He tokowaru e māuiui tonu ana

Hei tā Dr Bloomfield, ko te tatauranga o ngā tūroro katoa o Aotearoa, tūturu mai, tūpono atu kei te noho tonu ki te 1,504.

1,154 o ērā, he tūroro tūturu, e 350 he tūroro i matapaetia kua pāngia.

“There are 12 additional recovered cases and this total is now 1,474. We only have eight remaining cases considered to be active.”

Kāore he tangata kotahi kua pākia kei te hōhipera.

“Yesterday laboratories completed 4,255 tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 271,690,” te kōrero a Dr Bloomfield.

Ko ngā whakamāramatanga katoa mō ngā tūroro COVID-19 ka tītohua ki te paetukutuku o Te Manatū Hauora.
