More cases of Covid-19 community transmission found
Another 40 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 were confirmed this morning as well as three new probable cases, bringing the combined total of confirmed and probable cases in New Zealand to 155.
In the three probable cases the person has returned a negative laboratory result, but the clinician treating the person has diagnosed them as a probable case due to their exposure history and clinical symptoms.
There are 12 cases that are recovered.
Recent travel from overseas is still the main driver of new infections, but four cases are classed as community transmission â€“ three in Auckland and one in Wairarapa.
