The Ministry of Health is this evening notifying people who’ve previously reported having COVID-19 of a duplicate text sent due to a computer glitch over the weekend.

An uploading error on Friday afternoon and into Saturday morning meant approximately 6000 people were sent a repeat text messages telling them that they had returned a positive COVID-19 test and needed to isolate.

These personalised texts were received by people who tested positive within the last 10 days duplicating advice they had already received.
