Its 11 members, who have experience in areas like biostatistics, infectious diseases, geriatrics, paediatrics, consumer interests, pharmaceutical chemistry and manufacturing, clinical pharmacology, toxicology, clinical genetics, rheumatology and psychiatry, are anonymous to protect them from outside pressure in making decisions.

New Zealand's success in combating the virus has allowed it to lift restrictions and get its economy moving again much sooner than initially expected, but the closed border is decimating its tourism industry.

Foreign Affairs Minister Nanaia Mahuta previously said Australia's 72-hour suspension of a one-way travel bubble with New Zealand was a "cautionary message" to worldwide travellers.

The Northland woman was the first community case in New Zealand since November 18.

He said investigators were probing how the woman was infected during her compulsory two-week quarantine, including the possibility it spread through the hotel's air-conditioning system.

However, she said that the country will look to continue to pursue "travel bubbles" with Australia and Pacific island nations, which have also been successful at containing Covid-19.

The travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand had opened in October 2020, though it was a one-way arrangement. Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said Covid-19 vaccines will play a critical role in protecting New Zealanders' health and wellbeing and, over time, will be a big step back to normality.

Ms Ardern said New Zealand was confident in its virus response.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the Government still aims to start two-way travel with Australia in the first quarter of the year.

New Zealand has maintained a lower threshold for risk during the discussions. Of those, 15 people have returned negative tests, including a household contact of the case.

To date, that has not unearthed any new positive tests, including from 16 identified close contacts.

While Mr Morrison has trumpeted the first vaccines in Australia taking place in February, thanks to regulatory approval being granted on Sunday, New Zealand appears behind.

Medsafe will hear the case for the vaccine from the MAAC next Tuesday and a decision could be made by the next day, Jacinda Ardern said, but deployment of the vaccine will still take time.

This is something Ardern expressed her "disappointment" to Prime Minister Scott Morrison over, saying New Zealand's situation was "well under control".
