Christmas Covid numbers: 126 cases over past two days

卫生部表示,过去两天新增社区病例 126 例。

该数据刚刚在卫生部的一份声明中公布。

昨天有消息称,奥克兰地区妇女惩教所的 55 名囚犯和 21 名工作人员在圣诞节前夕一名工作人员的 Covid-19 检测呈阳性后被隔离。

地区专员 Lynette Cave 说,所有受影响的人都在接受病毒检测。

受感染的工作人员已全面接种疫苗——新西兰所有监狱工作人员都必须接种疫苗——他最后一次在监狱工作是在 12 月 17 日至 20 日之间。

截至 12 月 19 日,该设施的 248 名囚犯中有超过三分之二(即 167 人)接种了疫苗,略低于全国平均 68.1% 的囚犯接种疫苗。

塔拉纳基有一人在的 Covid-19 检测也呈阳性。



塔拉纳基地区卫生委员会今天宣布,新病例与该地区最大的集群 Eltham 小学有关。

西海岸地区现在有 23 个活跃的社区病例。

其中 6 个在 Stratford,3 个在 Waitara,28 个在 Eltham/Hawera,6 个在新普利茅斯。

平安夜,另一名 Covid-19 患者死亡。 由于持续的得尔塔疫情,新西兰 50 人死于该病毒的人数中有近一半是在过去四个月内发生的。

奥塔哥大学流行病学家迈克尔贝克说,每一次死亡都是悲惨的,并敦促新西兰人不要在假期中自满。

新病例位于奥克兰(37)、怀卡托(5)、丰盛湾(14)、湖区(5)和坎特伯雷(1)。五个怀卡托病例均在特库伊蒂,并且与之前病例的已知接触者有关。

公共卫生官员正在调查最近前往奥克兰的旅行,将其视为坎特伯雷病例的感染源。

该病例于 12 月 20 日星期一乘坐新西兰航空 NZ543 航班从奥克兰飞往基督城。

“这是一个悲伤的里程碑……当然,50 人死亡太多了,”他告诉 RNZ。

他说,在全球范围内,新西兰人有很多值得感谢的地方。

“这仍然意味着新西兰的死亡率在经合组织中是迄今为止最低的,比大多数高收入国家低数百倍。

“我们可以感激……作为一个国家,我们真的支持这种有凝聚力、负责任的方法,主要是为了照顾我们的家人和更广泛的社区。”

虽然贝克希望新西兰人有机会享受这个节日,但他敦促人们不要放松 Covid-19 的管理措施。

“我真的希望新西兰人能利用这段时间度过一个轻松愉快的假期,而不是自满。”


There have been 126 new community cases over the past two days, the Ministry of Health says.

The data has just been released in a statement from the Ministry of Health.

It was revealed yesterday that 55 prisoners and 21 staff at Auckland Region Women’s Corrections Facility were in isolation after a staff member tested positive for Covid-19 on Christmas Eve.

All those affected were being tested for the virus, regional commissioner Lynette Cave said.

The infected staff member is fully vaccinated – as all prison-based staff in New Zealand are required to be – and last worked at the prison between December 17 and 20.

Just over two-thirds – or 167 – of the 248 prisoners at the facility were fully vaccinated as of December 19, just under the national average of 68.1 per cent of prisoners being fully vaccinated.

A person also tested positive for Covid-19 in Taranaki.

The new case was linked to Eltham Primary School, which is the region’s biggest cluster, Taranaki District Health Board announced today.

There are now 23 active community cases in the west coast district.

Of those, six are in Stratford, three are in Waitara, 28 are in Eltham/Hawera and six are in New Plymouth.

On Christmas Eve, another person with Covid-19 died. Nearly half of the 50 deaths from the virus in New Zealand have occurred in the past four months as a result of the ongoing Delta outbreak.

University of Otago epidemiologist Michael Baker said every death was tragic and urged Kiwis not to get complacent over the holidays.

The new cases are in Auckland (37), Waikato (5), Bay of Plenty (14), Lakes (5) and Canterbury (1). The five Waikato cases are all in Te Kūiti and known contacts of previous cases.

Public health officials are investigating recent travel to Auckland as the source of infection of the Canterbury case.

The case travelled from Auckland to Christchurch on Monday, December 20 on Air NZ Flight NZ543.

“That is a sad milestone … and 50 deaths is, of course, too many,” he told RNZ.

In a global context, New Zealanders had a lot for which to be thankful, he said.

“This still means that New Zealand has by far the lowest mortality rate in the OECD, and it is several hundred-fold less than in most high-income countries.

“We can be grateful … that as a nation we have really gotten behind this cohesive, responsible approach which is mostly about looking after our family members and our wider community.”

While Baker hoped New Zealanders had a chance to enjoy the festive season, he urged people not to take a break from Covid-19 measures.

“I really hope that New Zealanders do take this time to have a relaxing, enjoyable holiday without getting complacent.’
