There were no new deaths, with the national toll remaining at 21.

There was no live 1pm briefing today, with the Ministry of Health releasing the numbers in a statement.

There was also no change to the number of people who have recovered from coronavirus at 1455, representing 97 per cent of all confirmed and probable cases as having recovered from the illness.

One person remains at Middlemore hospital, but they are not in the Intensive Care Unit.

There have been 5604 tests, bringing the total number of completed tests to 255,850.

The Health Ministry said the NZ COVID Tracer app has recorded 324,000 registrations since it was released on Tuesday night. The figure is 31,000 more than the same time yesterday.

"We continue to encourage as many people as possible to download the app – it will help us identify, trace, test and isolate any cases of Covid-19," the statement read.

"The faster we can do these steps the less likely it is the virus can spread in our communities."
