Live: Jacinda Ardern, Ashley Bloomfield give Covid-19 update as Level 3 looms for Auckland
The new cases are in Auckland and Upper Hauraki, just one is unlinked.
This takes the number of cases in this outbreak to 1085. Of these, 773 in Auckland and 17 in Wellington have recovered.
这使此次爆发的病例数达到 1085 例。其中，奥克兰 773 例和惠灵顿 17 例已经康复。
Of yesterday’s cases, nine were infectious in the community.
在昨天的病例中，有 9 例在社区中具有传染性。
There are now 10 linked subclusters in this outbreak – two are active, seven are contained and one is dormant. There are 11 unlinked subclusters – three are active, three are contained and five are dormant.
Over 200,000 swabs have been taken in primary care since August 18.
自 8 月 18 日以来，已在初级保健机构采集了超过 200,000 份拭子。
Bloomfield thanked primary care workers for their efforts.
Even though Auckland is moving to level 3, there are still travel restrictions in place.
尽管奥克兰已降至 3 级，但仍有旅行限制。
They will be allowing one-off journeys for people to attend funerals or to visit a dying relative.
This travel will require an exemption from the Ministry of Health. This exemption is limited to immediate family members. They must test negative within 72 hours of travel.
这种旅行需要获得卫生部的豁免。 此豁免仅限于直系亲属。 他们必须在旅行后 72 小时内检测为阴性。
On a positive note, Bloomfield said Pfizer’s trial of the Covid vaccine in kids aged 5-11 shows a favourable immune response and safety profile. This information is still limited, but it’s “promising news”, he said.
She broadly described level 2 as continuing to stay on alert. There might be people who have legitimate reasons to travel who may test positive.
她广泛地将 2 级警报描述为继续保持警惕。 可能有些人有正当理由旅行，但他们可能检测是呈阳性的。
Over 160,000 NewZealanders have come back through MIQ. One minister has left the country and come back through the MIQ system.
超过 160,000 名新西兰人通过 MIQ 返回。 一位部长通过 MIQ 系统离开国家并返回。
James Shaw and a few others will be given a small number of MIQ spaces in order to attend a climate change summit overseas.
James Shaw（绿党党魁） 和其他一些人将获得少量 MIQ 房间，以便参加海外气候变化峰会。
Ardern said there’s a balance to be struck between making sure Kiwis can return home and enabling a minister to represent New Zealand at important negotiations.
Shaw wasn’t getting an emergency allocation. Ardern said they have the ability to secure small group bookings in some instances. She said this would be a “small number” of rooms, but she wouldn’t put a number on it.
She said limiting contact without others remains critical.
If people keep turning up to get their first doses, it’s possible to reach 90 per cent vaccinate rates in a short period of time.
如果人们继续接种第一剂疫苗，则有可能在短时间内达到 90% 的疫苗接种率。
Ardern said family and friends need to help encourage others to get vaccinated. She said talking about it and providing information was what it would take to get the outstanding cohorts across the line.
