7,829 community cases; 395 hospitalisations; 8 in ICU; 15 deaths

Today we are reporting 7,829 community cases, 395 current hospitalisations, and 15 deaths.

The seven-day rolling average of community case numbers today is 5,808 – last Wednesday it was 4,873.

The higher number of cases in the last two days, compared to last week, is not unusual after a long weekend. It will take more time before we are able to determine if this is part of a trend.

Today we are sadly reporting the deaths of 15 people with COVID-19. All these deaths occurred within the past nine days.

They take the total number of publicly reported deaths with COVID-19 to 1,503 and the seven-day rolling average of reported deaths is 12.  

Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; three were from the Auckland region, one was from Waikato, one was from Lakes, two were from Bay of Plenty, two were from Taranaki, one was from the Wellington region, one was from Nelson Marlborough, one was from Canterbury, one was from West Coast, and two were from the Southern region.
