Today we are reporting 6,232 community cases, 769 current hospitalisations.
The seven-day rolling average of community case numbers today is 7,405
As at yesterday, Friday July 29, there were a total of 1,479 deaths confirmed as attributable to COVID-19, either as the underlying cause of death or as a contributing factor. The average increase in deaths each day attributable to COVID-19, over the past seven days to yesterday, is now 18.
* Hospitalisation numbers from Te Whatu Ora Counties Manukau and Te Whatu Ora Waikato were unavailable this morning, so yesterday’s numbers have been used.
These are new hospital admissions in the past 7 days prior to yesterday who had COVID at the time of admission or while in hospital, excluding hospitalisations that were admitted and discharged within 24hrs. This data is from Districts with tertiary hospitals: Auckland, Canterbury, Southern, Counties Manukau, Waikato, Capital, Coast and Hutt, and Northland.
Please note, the Ministry of Health’s daily reported cases may differ slightly from those reported at a District or local public health unit level. This is because of different reporting cut off times and the assignment of cases between regions, for example when a case is tested outside their usual region of residence. Total numbers will always be the formal daily case tally as reported to the WHO.
** Please note, updates on deaths confirmed as attributable to COVID-19 are only available on weekdays.
There are now a total of 1,479 deaths confirmed as attributable to COVID-19, either as the underlying cause of death or as a contributing factor. This is the number that will be reported to the World Health Organization as it provides the most accurate assessment of COVID-19 related mortality in New Zealand.
In the past seven days – to Friday 29 July – there was an average of 18 deaths confirmed each day as being attributable to COVID-19. This is a very sad time for whānau and friends of those who have died and our thoughts and condolences are with them.
Information on the number of new deaths of people with COVID-19 reported to the Ministry of Health in the last 24 hours, and the seven day rolling average, is available on the Ministry of Health website. This includes information on the age band and location of these newly reported deaths.
These newly reported deaths have not yet been categorised as to whether they are attributable to COVID-19, either as the underlying cause of death or as a contributing factor or are unrelated to COVID-19. As this categorisation is made over coming days, the attributable deaths will be added to the total reported above.
Please note: today's reported deaths with COVID-19 (COVID-19 death data) of 67 includes deaths between 12 May 2022 to 30 July 2022. This higher number reflects a recent data reconciliation process. Of the 67, only 25 were in the past week. These figures are now usually reported only on the website but are in today’s statement because of this additional information. The assessment of whether these deaths are attributable to COVID-19 will be made in coming days.
