Ashley Bloomfield to step down
There were 12,575 new community cases of Covid today and 15 deaths.
That includes people who have died over the previous four weeks.
It takes the total number of publicly reported deaths with Covid-19 to 443, and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 18.
Meanwhile, Dr Ashley Bloomfield announced this morning he would step down as Director-General of Health at the end of July.
He told staff he believed it was the right time to go because the Covid-19 response was more settled ahead of the Government implementing major reforms of the health system.
