McElnay said we can be cautiously optimistic this outbreak is contained.
The truck driver reported yesterday travelled in his work capacity to a number of supermarkets in Auckland, the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions.
He and his partner have been transferred to MIQ.
The newest locations of interest are in Cambridge, Ngatea, Bombay, Paeroa and Maramarua.
最新感兴趣的地点位于Cambridge, Ngatea, Bombay, Paeroa and Maramarua.。
The man wore a mask and maintained physical distancing while working.
The supermarkets he visited aren’t locations of interest because they were delivery areas not accessible to the public.
These supermarkets have been operating with all Covid protocols in place – scanning, masking and physical distancing.

A number of vehicles, including heavy freight trucks, were turned around at the checkpoints overnight for failing to show this evidence.
On wastewater testing, ESR reported a positive result from a sample collected on Monday from a catchment in East Auckland.
A follow up sample was taken on Wednesday, the results are expected in the coming days.
McElnay said they expect to see detections in wastewater across Auckland because recently recovered cases can still shed the virus.
These results, however, show the need for us to continue acting on the side of caution.
There are over 1000 active contacts linked to this outbreak.
有超过 1000 名活跃联系人与此次疫情有关。

她说，在北部和南部检查站以及 MIQ 设施工作的人一直在做“出色”的工作。
The new resurgence support payments and wage subsidy payments have opened for applications, Robertson said.
So far, 480,697 applications for the wage subsidy have been approved – that’s around $2.1 billion in payments.
到目前为止，已经批准了 480,697 份工资补贴申请——支付金额约为 21 亿纽币。
Almost $2.2b has been paid out in economic support during this outbreak.
85 per cent to 90 per cent of economic activity is possible at alert level 3, Robertson said.
罗伯逊说，在 3 级警报下，85% 到 90% 的经济活动是可能的。
Level 4 in Auckland and level 2 elsewhere is costing the economy $700m per week. A move to level 3 will cost around $200m per week.

Another emergency red flight will depart Australia for those in dire need of returning.
Robertson and McElnay are now taking questions.
Robertson 和 McElnay 现在正在接受提问。
Around 10 per cent of people going to the Auckland boundary were turned around overnight due to having no evidence of a negative test.
由于没有证据表明检测结果呈阴性，大约 10% 前往奥克兰边界的人在昨夜被叫掉头。
Robertson said it was a relatively small percentage.
Issues might be around whether travellers have had the test in the 7 day window, as required.
问题可能在于旅行者是否按照要求在 7 天窗口内进行了测试。
The Director-General of Health decided to let the Silver Ferns leave the Auckland region.
卫生总干事决定让 Silver Ferns 离开奥克兰地区。
Robertson said given it was an international sporting vent and it represented only four people, it was a low risk. It covered business travel, rather than a personal travel exemption.
He stressed it’s a decision the Director-General makes, not the Government.
Regarding the trans-Tasman bubble, Robertson said they want to see where both countries are with vaccination rates in 8 weeks’ time.
关于跨塔斯曼泡泡，罗伯逊说，他们想看看这两个国家在 8 周后的疫苗接种率情况。
At the moment, a number of states in Australia are experiencing uncontrolled outbreaks.
He said for now, this is the appropriate decision.
They want to have the ability to assess the bubble in 8 weeks, rather than just closing the door completely.
他们希望能够在 8 周内评估泡泡，而不仅仅是完全关上大门。
The third red flight departing Australia will be challenging for some, depending on where it departs.
Robertson said they’re working on this, but for now, the red flights have departed Sydney.
Will they assess the situation state-by-state?
Robertson said they might be able to assess if that’s possible in the future, but it’s not on the table at the moment.
He said from the perspective of today, it doesn’t feel like a very likely outcome they’d start green flights again in 8 weeks.
他说，从今天的角度来看，他们在 8 周内再次开始绿色航班的可能性不大。
All of the Government’s Covid decisions are led by a health response.
政府的所有 Covid 决定都由健康应对措施主导。
They have to look at the situation with Delta as it is now, rather than looking at it through an old lens.
There’s a different situation now thanks to Delta.
“It is a very different environment now,” Robertson said.
Once vaccinations have wrapped up, more options will likely be available.
Robertson is excited by anybody promoting the idea of everyone getting vaccinated.
Various modellers have said 90 per cent plus coverage is what we need to aim for.
各种建模者都说 90% 以上的覆盖率是我们需要的目标。
Robertson said they want to ensure they reach 90 per cent and even above.
罗伯逊说，他们希望确保达到 90% 甚至更高。
McElnay said they need as many people as possible to get vaccinated.
Each positive case in MIQ is released following a clinical assessment.
McElnay said they want to ensure they have “tight management” of anyone infectious in the community if the region moves down a level.
Back to the Covid positive truck driver.
回到 Covid 阳性卡车司机。
A person in the household was symptomatic and went and got tested. The driver was a household member and also got a test at the same time.
The results of both came back positive.
The case wasn’t tested and then went to work. They were previously tested and returned a negative test, they then went to work, after that the second test happened and they returned a positive result.

. Robertson said it’s a tragic event and their heart’s go out to the community and family members linked.
“My heart does go out to all those around them and their community.”
McElnay said a mask is only good when it’s worn properly.
She said people sometimes wear masks underneath their noses. Masks have to cover your nose and mouth.
The guidelines and requirements around mask use in MIQ facilities have been updated. N95 masks are used extensively.
在 MIQ 设施中使用口罩的指南和要求已更新。 N95口罩被广泛使用。
They will continue to look at the information available publicly.
People wearing reusable masks need to keep them clean
Robertson’s message to Aucklanders is “get vaccinated”.
73 per cent of the eligible population across the country have had their first dose.
全国 73% 的符合条件的人口接种了第一剂疫苗。
“We need all New Zealanders to take the opportunity to be vaccinated.”
In level 4, people are asked to stay home, but they can leave home to get vaccinated.
在 4 级警报下，人们被要求呆在家里，但他们可以离开家接种疫苗。
The red flights are for NZ citizens or residents. People must be in an emergency situation in order to meet the criteria and get on these flights.
Robertson hadn’t heard of examples where people fell outside of this criteria.
You must not be able to continue to care for yourself in an appropriate way in Australia, he said.
They made the decision about the bubble suspension being extended at a delegate cabinet meeting on Wednesday or Thursday.
It was announced today to allow people to participate in the MIQ release next week. They need to ensure there are flights available for people to book.
今天宣布允许人们参与下周的 MIQ 发布。 他们需要确保有可供人们预订的航班。
The decision to move to level 3 in Auckland is based on health advice at the time. There’s cautious optimism it will happen.
奥克兰降至 3 级的决定是基于当时的健康建议。 人们谨慎乐观地认为它会发生。
There are 8 unlinked cases at the moment. McElnay said it’s a “moveable feast”.
目前有8个未关联的病例。 McElnay 说这是一场“流动的盛宴”。
THey will look at the pattern of cases and what that data tells them when providing Cabinet with advice on Monday.
She said the “vast majority” of this outbreak has been contained.
They’re still finding small numbers of new cases, McElnay said.
The 9 cases reported yesterday who were infectious in the community might not have known they were contacts. But those asked to stay in isolation are following the rules.
昨天报告的 9 例在社区具有传染性的病例可能不知道他们是接触者。 但那些被要求保持隔离的人正在遵守规则。
Household contacts know they need to isolate. They don’t necessarily identify every other contact straight away.
The sequencing of being identified as a contact isn’t always linear, Robertson said.
This weekend is a great opportunity for Aucklanders to get vaccinated.
If all things go well, the region will be able to move to level 3 next week.
如果一切顺利，该地区下周将能够升至 3 级。
Vaccination buses are going out, community vaccination centres are open. Roberston said there’s no limit for people to get vaccinated in Auckland this weekend.
Testing numbers are important for alert level change decisions.
Robertson said the numbers have been good this week and they want to see that continue through the weekend. They don’t set a number, but they want to make sure it remains high.罗伯逊表示，本周的数据不错，他们希望看到这种情况持续到周末。 他们没有设定一个数字，但他们想确保它保持在高位。
Robertson said they appreciate that Aucklanders have been through 5 weeks of lockdown, which is hard. He thanked them for that.
罗伯逊说，他们感谢奥克兰人经历了 5 周的封锁，这很艰难。 他为此感谢他们。
The decision to move down alert levels will be based on health advice.
“We want Aucklanders to know how much we appreciate what they have done,” he said.“我们希望奥克兰人知道我们对他们所做的事情有多么感激，”他说。
