The new level of restrictions for Auckland, which the Prime Minister referred to as level 2.5, entails level 2 restrictions but with additional limits on public gatherings.

The total count of reported infections in New Zealand was 1,376, which was the count the country registered to the World Health Organization.

About 150 people have been diagnosed as part of the cluster that originated in Auckland, which is home to 1.7 million people, but daily new case numbers have slowed to single digits this week. "The health worker in question was wearing full PPE [Personal Protective Equipment], did everything absolutely by the book, but Covid is a very hard virus".

The Pacific nation of 5 million people had seemed to stop community transmission of COVID-19 due to tough lockdown measures but reintroduced restrictions in its largest city, Auckland, this month following a fresh outbreak.

The other new case is a household contact of a previously confirmed case associated with the Finance Now workplace.

Dr McElnay said two cases had now recovered, so the total number of active cases remains at 136.

"Here, we are relying on common sense and care to make this work when it comes to Aucklanders who are travelling", she said. Eight people are on a ward, and two are in ICU in Middlemore and Waikato Hospitals.

If people develop symptoms consistent with Covid-19, they should call Healthline (0800 358 5453) or their doctor immediately and have a test, the ministry said.

"The tail of this cluster will be long".

New Zealand has 13 new cases of Covid-19, including 11 in the Auckland community, just a day before the region set to drop to alert level 2.
