New Zealand extends new lockdown measures in Auckland

Ashley says a 13th case, which is now in Auckland Hospital, has no known link and an investigation is underway to find out where this person contracted the virus.

Cabinet will review New Zealand's progress on August 21.

She hopes by this time the perimeter of the cluster will be identified and isolated.

This was after the discovery of four new cases of community transmission - all from the same family - in Auckland.

"Lifting restrictions now and seeing a potential explosion in cases is the worst thing we would do for Auckland and the New Zealand economy", she said.

National health director-general Ashley Bloomfield acknowledged feelings were running high but urged the public not to take out their frustrations on frontline health workers.

Anyone who has tested positive to the virus is required to quarantine in a managed facility. Auckland has been placed in Level 3 lockdown for three days from Wednesday 12 August, with all residents to work from home unless they are essential workers and all schools and childcare centres are closed.

"We worked so hard to get rid of it and now every time you turn around it's COVID, COVID, COVID". If you're in Auckland, stay at home in your bubble.

"People talking about the border, even that's premature at this point, we simply do not have enough information to make even an educated guess about where this may have come from", Hipkins told broadcaster 1NEWS.

Le port du masque devient obligatoire dans la région de Bruxelles — Coronavirus
Par exemple lorsque l'on fait son footing ou que l'on effectue un travail physique intensif sur la voie publique. Et même si ce chiffre était à la baisse mardi (à 47,1), Rudi Vervoot a choisi de jouer la précaution.

The earliest coronavirus case was detected after a worker at the Americold Coolstore in Mt Wellington became sick on July 31.

The source was still not clear, Ardern says, but genome sequencing "suggests it is not a case of the virus being dormant or of a burning ember in our community, it appears to be new to New Zealand".

"What we know about clusters as we have found out in the past is that they do continue to grow", he said.

Bloomfield said today there were 13 new cases of Covid-19 in the community - 12 confirmed and one probable.

A further 13 cases have since been confirmed and linked to the Auckland family, the first cases in the Pacific island nation in more than three months, raising some doubts over Ardern's eradication strategy for the pandemic as she heads into a general election next month.

"We've seen no evidence of a Covid-19 case outside of Auckland that is unrelated to the cluster we are dealing with".

Thirty-eight people linked to the cluster have already moved into quarantine facilities. This is the number that will be reported to the WHO.

Two of the confirmed cases are in Tokoroa and are connected to a family member of the South Auckland family which first tested positive this week.

Bloomfield started the briefing with the reminder that: "the problem is the virus, not people".
