647 coronavirus cases in New Zealand
Covid-19: 74 people now
recovered in NZ – Health
There have been 58 new confirmed and probable cases of Covid-19 in New
Zealand in the past 24 hours, with 74 people now recovered.
Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said that with the 58 new cases, there have now been a total of 647 cases in New Zealand.
“Whilst this is a drop in the [daily increase] number over the last day or two, I have no sense that this is a drop overall and our expectation is that the number of cases will continue to increase.”
He said the lower number could be partly attributed to fewer couriers working on Sunday, which could have held up test results.
