He confirmed the latest update while on Q+A this morning, ahead of the official Ministry of Health release at 1pm.

It comes as Auckland moves from its Alert Level 3 lockdown to Level 2 today, with the rest of the country moving to Level 1.

If no community cases are confirmed during the rest of today, it would make a full seven days since the last community case. 

Hipkins says it's possible there are more cases in managed isolation or quarantine to be announced today; nine were announced yesterday.

The official Ministry of Health update is due at 1pm today, in a written media statement.
