Today we are reporting 6,745 community cases, 339 hospitalisations and 12 deaths.
Today’s seven-day rolling average of community case numbers is 7,512 – last Saturday it was 7,415.
As people to look to catch up with their whānau over this weekend, it’s a timely reminder for people to continue to follow public health advice to stay at home and stay away from school or work if you’re feeling unwell. Another way to protect you and your whānau is to get vaccinated if you haven’t already done so.
Vaccination remains our best defence against COVID-19 and getting boosted is an important way people can protect themselves, their whānau and their friends from the virus.
Please if you are due for a vaccination, whether it be a second shot or booster, make an appointment today nor walk into a clinic.
Today we are sadly reporting the deaths of 12 people with COVID-19. The deaths being reported today include people who have died over the past two days.
Delays to reporting can be associated with people dying with COVID-19, rather than from COVID-19, and COVID being discovered only after they have died.
These deaths take the total number of publicly reported deaths with COVID-19 to 857 and the 7-day rolling average of reported deaths is 16.
Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; three people were from Auckland; two from Waikato; one from MidCentral; two from the Greater Wellington region; three from Canterbury and one from Southern.
One person was in their 40s; one in their 60s; two in their 70s; four in their 80s and four were aged over 90.
Of these people, seven were women and five were men.
This is a very sad time for whānau and friends and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this time.
Out of respect, we will be making no further comment.
