Covid 19 coronavirus Delta: No new cases in BOP, Lakes region, student tests positive, new location of interest

Covid-19 in the Bay of Plenty
• Covid-19 Delta outbreak: Kawerau records first Delta case
• Covid booster shots are coming – why the Bay of Plenty needs them
• Revealed: Are the leaders you voted for vaxxed?

There are no new cases of Covid-19 in the Lakes District Health Board and Bay of Plenty District Health Board region today.

The total cases for Bay of Plenty remains at 48 while Lakes has 26, including three who have recovered.

There are 182 new cases in New Zealand today with 93 people in hospital, and 10 in ICU.

There were 14,009 total doses administered yesterday, made up 3679 first doses and 8040 second doses. To date, 92 per cent of eligible people in New Zealand have had their first dose and 85 per cent are fully vaccinated.

The Ministry of Health is asking anyone in New Zealand with symptoms – no matter how mild – to get tested, even if you’re vaccinated.

“Please remain isolated until you return a negative test result.

“If you are not vaccinated, now is the time, as vaccination is the number one defence against Covid-19. Your DHB or local health provider will have plenty of opportunities to make this happen.”

Pāpāmoa school student tests positive

A student at a Pāpāmoa school has tested positive for Covid-19.

Te Akau ki Pāpāmoa Primary School principal Bruce Jepsen said the school had moved “succinctly” into distance learning with all students based at home today.

Communication about the positive case was sent out to families on Friday afternoon and close contacts of the case were being deemed by the Ministry of Health, he said.

“We are one to one digital school so we have been able to move succinctly into distance learning.”

Jepsen praised efforts made by the Ministry saying they had been “good communicators and very supportive”.

“They have been guiding us all the way through.”

The Ministry of Health was approached for comment.
