今天社区新增 60 个新冠病例,在边境发现了 11 个新的Delta病例。

还有 6 个 Omicron 病例,使Omicron 病例总数达到 78 个。

卫生部刚刚发布了信息。

该部表示,社区中出现了第二起与边境有关的Omicron病例。 该病例是新西兰航空公司的一名机组人员,他于 12 月 24 日在奥克兰和悉尼之间的航班上工作。

他们于 12 月 27 日在常规监测测试中接受了 COVID-19 检测。

“全基因组测序已经证实了是 Omicron 的变种,并且还证实该病例与同一航班上的其他三起 Omicron 病例有关,”该部说。

“此病例立即转移到 MIQ 设施。

“该病例已全面接种疫苗。已经确定了八名密切接触者,其中七名检测结果呈阴性。

“在这个阶段,没有已知的暴露关注地点。”


 

There are 60 new community cases of Covid-19 today, with 11 new Delta cases identified at the border.

There are six additional Omicron cases, bringing the total to 78.

The Ministry of Health has just released the information.

The ministry says a second border-related case has been in the community. The case is an Air New Zealand crew member who worked on a flight between Auckland and Sydney on December 24.

They were tested for COVID-19 in routine surveillance testing on December 27.

“Whole genome sequencing has confirmed the Omicron variant and has also confirmed the case is linked to three other Omicron cases on the same flight,” the ministry said.

“The case was immediately transferred to a MIQ facility.

“The case is fully vaccinated. Eight close contacts have been identified, seven of whom have returned negative test results.

“At this stage, there are no known locations of interest.”



卫生部将公布有关感染 Omicron 的英国 DJ 及其密切接触者的更多详细信息。

该部将于下午 1 点左右发布关于社区中今天的病例以及该国 Omicron 病例总数的声明。

昨天,Northland、奥克兰、怀卡托、湖泊、Tairāwhiti 和坎特伯雷报告了 46 例新病例。

基因组测序结果返回后,该部确认在边境共发现71例Omicron病例。

它增加了 17 例,从周二的 54 例增加到周三的 71 例——这是自 12 月 16 日在新西兰发现第一例以来 Omicron 病例的最高峰值。

敦促人们在认为自己有症状或去过感兴趣的地方时接受检测。

该部表示,假期期间的检测率低于往常。

今天早上早些时候,Covid 19 响应部长克里斯·希普金斯 (Chris Hipkins) 表示,在得知真名罗伯特·埃瑟里奇 (Robert Etheridge) DJ Dimension 在社区中被感染后,多达 100 人可能会自我隔离。

“我认为他不遵守规则令人失望,”希普金斯说。

“在这起病例之前,Omicron 的变种一直被很好地控制在边境。”

他在 12 月 26 日和 12 月 27 日期间访问了奥克兰中央商务区的一家夜总会、酒吧、餐馆和一家珠宝店,然后才收到第九天检测的阳性结果。

其他将在夏季在多个音乐节上演出的国际和本地 DJ 被列为密切接触者,迫使他们在最后一刻退出,以进行自我隔离,以防万一。

圣诞节期间,他还在怀赫科岛度过了一段时间。

Etheridge 是最后一批通过 7 天管理隔离和 3 天自我隔离系统的人之一,之后该系统被收紧以应对新的变体。

希普金斯说:“我们要求人们隔离,直到他们从第 9 天的检测中获得结果为止。”

“我们要求人们在自我隔离的同时留在自己的圈子里。

“这里的情况并非如此,这非常令人失望。

“这当然是一个提醒……虽然我们中的许多人都觉得疫情已经结束了,但 Covid-19 还没有结束,”Hipkins 说。

卫生官员今天早上向他们证实,DJ 没有在 MIQ 感染 Omicron的。

他是新西兰唯一拥有特定基因组序列的人,因此尚不清楚他是如何感染该变异的。

希普金斯说,社区暴露并不一定意味着区域必须移动到红绿灯系统的红色级别。

该部此前曾表示,他们不相信这位 DJ 具有“高度传染性”。

埃瑟里奇昨夜在社交媒体上发表了一份声明,称他对检测呈阳性感到“震惊”。

他声称他完成了 7 天的管理隔离和 3 天的自我隔离。

“令我震惊和担忧的是,在隔离期结束两天后,我意外地在第十二天收到了阳性检测结果。”

 



卫生部建议奥克兰人定期检查暴露关注点并遵循给出的建议。

Ahi 餐厅发言人 Christopher Martin 告诉媒体,尽管他们对成为 Omicron 变体的第一批暴露地点之一感到惊讶,但他们已经为可能发生的情况做好了准备。 密切接触的员工正在隔离,公司将关闭数天。

马丁说 Ahi 将保持关闭状态,“星期六、星期日、星期一、星期二,因为我们现在已经失去了一半的前台人员一个星期。 我们已经决定管理人手不足的问题,并……让每个人都接受检测。”

More details about the movements of a British DJ infected with Omicron and his close contacts are set to be released by the Ministry of Health.

A statement on today’s cases in the community, as well as the total number of Omicron cases in the country, is set to be published by the ministry around 1pm.

Yesterday there were 46 new cases reported across Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Lakes, Tairāwhiti and Canterbury.

After genome sequencing results were returned, the ministry confirmed a total of 71 Omicron cases detected at the border.

It jumped by 17, from a total of 54 cases on Tuesday to 71 on Wednesday – the highest spike in Omicron cases since the first case was detected in New Zealand on December 16.

People are being urged to get tested if they think they have symptoms, or if they have been in a location of interest.

Testing rates have been lower than usual over the holiday period, the ministry said.

Earlier this morning Covid 19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said up to 100 people could be self-isolating after it was revealed DJ Dimension, real name Robert Etheridge, was infected while in the community.

“I think it’s disappointing he didn’t follow rules,” Hipkins said.

“The Omicron variant, up until this one case, has been well contained at the border.”

He visited a nightclub, bar, restaurants and a jewellers in Auckland CBD across December 26 and December 27 – before receiving the positive results of his day nine test.

Other international and local DJs who were to perform at a number of music festivals over summer, were named as close contacts, forcing them to pull out at the last minute in order to self-isolate as a precaution.


The Ministry of Health is advising Aucklanders to check the locations of interest regularly and follow the advice given.

Ahi Restaurant spokesperson Christopher Martin told Stuff, that although they were surprised to be one of the first Aotearoa locations of interest regarding the Omicron variant, they had prepared for the eventuality. Staff that were close contacts are isolating, and the business will close for multiple days.

Martin said Ahi will stay shut, “Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday as we have now lost half of the front of house team for one week. We have made the decision to manage the lack of staff and… get everyone tested.”
