There are 8,529 new cases being reported in the Auckland Region today, representing 56 percent of the total new cases – down from 61 percent of total new cases a week ago. This number is still high and the outbreak is still very active in the Auckland region, but numbers have levelled off there in the last week. We will know in the next few days if this signals that the outbreak has peaked there.

The number of people in hospital with COVID-19 remains steady, with 19 people now in an intensive care unit (ICU) or high dependency unit (HDU). This represents 2.5 percent of current hospitalisations, around one fifth of the rate seen at the peak of the Delta outbreak when 13 percent of hospitalised people required ICU or HDU care.

Once again, most cases today are a result of people reporting positive rapid antigen tests (RATs). It is very important for people to record positive RAT results, either through ‘My Covid Record’ or by calling 0800 222 478. Thank you to all those who have tested and reported their results to date.

COVID-19 related deaths

Sadly, we are today reporting the deaths of four people with COVID-19. Of these people, two deaths occurred in Lakes, one in Tairāwhiti, and one in Counties Manukau.

Our thoughts and condolences are with the patients’ family and friends.

Out of respect, we will be making no further comment.
