New Zealand will now implement new controls to keep case numbers down.

The number has declined for the fourth-straight day, giving the best evidence yet that New Zealand has squashed the spread of the deadly disease.

Churches will remain closed over Easter weekend, Jacinda says.

There 26 confirmed cases and 24 probable cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand today.

During the next two weeks, the ministry expected to see new coronavirus cases popping up linked to existing cases.

As at Saturday afternoon 10 April there are 28 cases of COVID-19 linked with the Rosewood cluster.

Ms Ardern mentioned: "At the midway mark I haven't any hesitation in pronouncing, that what New Zealanders have executed during the last two weeks is massive".

"In the face of the greatest threat to human health we have seen in over a century, Kiwis have quietly and collectively implemented a nationwide wall of defence". New Zealand could drop the arrangements on April 20.

Every case is listed with an age group, a rough location and - where relevant - the details of that person's recent global travel, including their flight number.

This was a separate case to the person who lived in Waitomo and worked in Ōtorohanga, as they were counted as a Waitomo case.

Anne Guenole died in Grey Base Hospital in Greymouth on March 30 and a Christchurch woman aged in 90s died at Burwood hospital on Thursday.

The Ministry of Health said there is still a strong but declining link to overseas travel (40%), and ongoing links to confirmed cases within New Zealand (44%) including those in clusters we already know about and community transmission (2%).

A mandatory quarantine at the border will be imposed to stop coronavirus spreading from new arrivals.

The government will also turn to tracking applications to assist with contact tracing, a model which has won praise in South Korea and Singapore.
