The new cases are in Auckland (47), Waikato (15), Bay of Plenty (10), Lakes (1) and Taranaki (3).

There are 51 people in hospital across New Zealand and five people in ICU or HDU, the Ministry of Health said in today’s 1pm Covid update. The average age of those in hospital is 53.

Two other passengers on the international flight have tested positive for Covid-19 and one further passenger’s positive result is being investigated as a historical infection.

One of the cases has been identified as the Delta variant while the genome sequencing for the other two cases is due later today.

卫生官员将透露该国首例 Omicron 病例的新进展,这导致了一项重大的接触者追踪工作,以确定与感染者一起乘坐过两次航班的乘客。

卫生部将于下午 1 点发布声明。

随着迄今为止最具传染性的变种的到来,官员们表示,在该乘客在新西兰降落后的例行检测中呈阳性后,他们将发布有关此病例和下一步行动的更多信息。

该病例于周五从德国经迪拜抵达新西兰。 他们降落在奥克兰,然后乘坐包机前往基督城。

该乘客目前在苏迪玛基督城机场酒店接受隔离。

商业、创新和就业部表示,在基督城和奥克兰的 7 个隔离管理设施中,有 82 名密切接触者与此病例有密切联系。



当前德尔塔疫情中的新社区病例继续徘徊在 100 大关以下,昨天有 91 例新感染,其中塔拉纳基学校感染群增加到 16 人和 58 人在新西兰各地的医院接受治疗。

尽管吉斯本 (Gisborne) 没有活跃病例,但令人担忧的第六次在废水中检测到 Covid,卫生当局敦促该地区出现症状的人,无论多么轻微,都要挺身而出去接受检测。

昨天有消息称,正在追踪接触者,以识别 12 月 10 日从德国抵达这里的国际航班以及奥克兰和基督城之间的包机国内航班上的乘客。

受感染的旅行者接种了两剂辉瑞疫苗。

作为预防措施,受影响航班上的所有乘客现在都在有管理的隔离设施中完成 10 天隔离,而不是在隔离期的最后三天进行自我隔离。 这意味着他们无法在圣诞节前外出。

布卢姆菲尔德说,来自海外病例的证据表明,第三次接种加强剂在对抗 Omicron 的斗争中很重要。

在过去的几天里,他收到了关于第二次刺戳和加强注射之间的时间段的建议。

他说,他最近几天得到的建议将在政府官员和部长之间进行讨论。

“如果我们在该国获得 Omicron,那么较短的时间间隔可能会确保人们确实获得疫苗加强针并在适当的时间增加他们的保护。”

他预计会在圣诞节前宣布提前进行接种加强针,但这取决于部长们的决定。

布卢姆菲尔德告诉 Newstalk ZB,在飞往新西兰和穿越新西兰的航班上与感染者一起旅行的人中,没有进一步检测到 Omicron。

他说,将人们带到新西兰的航班以及飞往基督城的国内航班上的所有人员都在隔离中并接受检测。

“我们将密切关注,看看是否还有其他阳性检测结果。”

新西兰达到关键疫苗接种目标

Omicron 进入新西兰的消息传出的同一天,政府宣布已在新西兰达到 90% 的双针疫苗接种率。

截至周四,4,209,057 名符合条件的 12 岁及以上新西兰人中有 3,789,662 人已全面接种疫苗。

该部表示,七个地区卫生委员会的人口现已达到目标,未来几天将有更多人达到里程碑。



Health officials are set to reveal new developments about the country’s first Omicron case, which has resulted in a major contact tracing effort to identify passengers who travelled with the infected person on two flights.

The Ministry of Health is due to release a statement at 1pm.

With the arrival of the most contagious variant yet, officials say they will be issuing more information on the case and next steps after it emerged the passenger had tested positive on routine testing after touching down in New Zealand.

The case arrived in New Zealand on Friday on a flight from Germany via Dubai. They landed in Auckland and were transferred on a charter flight to Christchurch.

That passenger is currently in quarantine at the Sudima Christchurch Airport hotel.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment said there were 82 close contacts of the case across seven managed facilities in Christchurch and Auckland.

It comes as new community cases in the current Delta outbreak continue to hover under the 100 mark, with 91 new infections yesterday, including a Taranaki school cluster growing to 16 and 58 people being treated in hospitals across New Zealand.

Despite no active cases in Gisborne, a worrying sixth detection of Covid in wastewater had health authorities urging people in the district who had symptoms no matter how mild to come forward and get tested.

Yesterday it was revealed contact tracing was under way to identify passengers on the international flight from Germany that arrived here on December 10 and the chartered internal flight between Auckland and Christchurch.

The infected traveller is fully vaccinated with two doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

As a precautionary measure, all passengers on the affected flights are now completing 10 days at a managed isolation facility rather than spend the last three days of their isolation period in self-isolation. This will mean they are not able to be out before Christmas.

Booster shot advice

Earlier today, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the arrival of Omicron on our shores could lead to a reduction in the recommended time double-jabbed New Zealanders should wait before getting a booster shot.

Bloomfield said evidence from cases overseas showed the third booster jab was important in the fight against Omicron.

He had been given advice in the past couple of days on the time period between getting the second jab and the booster shot.
