New Zealand reports one new case of COVID-19

New Zealand reports one new case of COVID-19

Wellington, Aug 11 (UNI) New Zealand reported one new case of COVID-19 on Tuesday, with the number of active cases in the country being 22, all in managed isolation or quarantine facilities, according to the Ministry of Health.

It has been 102 days since the last case of COVID-19 was acquired locally from an unknown source, according to the ministry.

Tuesday's case was a man in his 20s who arrived in New Zealand on July 30 from Melbourne, Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield told a press conference.

He has been in managed isolation at the Grand Millennium and tested negative for COVID-19 around day three of his stay. He has tested positive around day 12 of his stay and has been transferred to the Auckland quarantine facility, Bloomfield said.

This case brought New Zealand's total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 to 1,220. None of those people are receiving hospital-level care, he said.

Bloomfield repeated his thanks to front-line services which continued to provide health services in the challenging circumstances

The health ministry is planning for a COVID-19 immunization program, and while there is still significant uncertainty on what a potential COVID-19 vaccine might be and how it will be delivered, work is currently underway to strengthen the country's immunization system and learn from the recent experiences in managing rapid changes in demand for vaccines - including the response to last year's measles outbreak and this year's influenza campaign, he said.
