New Zealand reports 2 new cases of COVID-19 for first time in 24 days
The New Zealand Ministry of Health reported two new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday for the first time in 24 days.
The ministry confirmed that the two new cases were both related to the border as a result of recent travel from Britain.
The combined number of confirmed and probable cases in New Zealand was 1,506, including 1,156 confirmed cases of COVID-19, which is the number reported to the World Health Organization, said a ministry statement.
The number of COVID-19 related deaths in New Zealand was 22. The number of recovered cases was 1,482, it said.
Border restrictions have increased although people's lives are back to normal domestically, Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said last week, adding that people at the border are being tested no matter they have symptoms or not.
