There remains 23 active cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand, all of which are in managed isolation or quarantine facilities, the Ministry of Health said in a press release this afternoon.

It has now been 98 days since the last coronavirus case was found locally from an unknown source.

No one is receiving hospital-level care for the illness in New Zealand.

The number of confirmed or probable cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand remains at 1219.

Yesterday, there were 4,014 tests carried out for Covid-19 in New Zealand, 282 of which were taken in managed isolation and quarantine facilities. The total number of tests for the virus in New Zealand now totals 486,943.
