Today we are reporting 18,699 new community cases, 853 people in hospital with the virus, and seven additional COVID-19 related deaths.

This is another reminder that the Omicron variant can still cause serious illness and/or death either directly or by its impact on other health conditions.

Getting vaccinated and boosted will help to keep you out of hospital if you catch COVID-19 and could save your life.

At this sad time, our thoughts are with the whanau and friends of all those who have died.

COVID-19 related deaths

As we have said, we are today reporting the deaths of seven people with COVID-19. Of these deaths, three occurred in the Auckland region, and one each in Bay of Plenty, MidCentral, Wellington and Canterbury.

The total number of publicly reported COVID-19 related deaths to date is now 105.

Of the people who have died that we are announcing today, one person was in their fifties, two were in their 70s, two were in their 80s, and two were in their 90s. Four were male and three were female.

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

Registering your result

If you test positive with a rapid antigen test, it’s essential you register your positive result.

You can register in My Covid Record. If you cannot access My Covid Record, call 0800 222 478. 

As of yesterday, parents and caregivers can choose to use My Covid Record to report rapid antigen test results for children under 12 and other family members.

We want to acknowledge and thank people for reporting their results. Registering your positive result  is important. It’s the best way to give public health officials an overview of case numbers in particular areas of New Zealand, to help determine the best spread of public health resources. It’s also important if your condition worsens and you require additional healthcare.

Home isolation

As of 11.59pm last night, the isolation period for cases and household contacts has now reduced from 10 to seven days.

This change applies to anyone who is isolating at the time of the change.

If you test positive for COVID-19, you are required to isolate for 7 days. You do not need to be retested after your initial positive result. If you still have symptoms after 7 days, stay home until you feel better and then wait another 24 hours.

If you are a household contact and you have done a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) on both days 3 and 7 of the isolation period of the first COVID-19 positive person in your house, and both tests are negative, you can leave isolation on day 8 if you are well.

If you are a household contact and return a positive RAT result while isolating, you will need to isolate for a further 7 days and wait till 24 hours after you are symptom free. Other household members do not have to reset their isolation and can leave isolation on day 8, the same day as the first case can leave isolation, provided they have returned negative RAT results and are not symptomatic.

If you’ve tested negative, but still feel sick or symptomatic, we strongly advise you to follow public health guidance and stay home and away from public places, work and other social gatherings to keep others and yourself safe. You should retest in 48 hours if symptoms persist or worsen.

Total numbers will always be the formal daily case tally as reported to the WHO.
