TRAVELER FROM PH AMONG NEW ZEALAND’S NEW COVID-19 CASES
The country’s Ministry of Health reported that a female traveler from the Philippines is among the 14 new COVID-19 cases in New Zealand.
“There is one new case of COVID-19 to report in managed isolation – a woman in her 30s who arrived in New Zealand from the Philippines on August 8. She has been in managed isolation at the Distinction Hotel and tested positive around Day 3 of her stay,” The Ministry announced.
The other 13 new cases are considered community cases. All of them are in Auckland and linked to 4 previous coronavirus cases from the same family.
New Zealand recently broke its 102-day streak of having no community cases of COVID-19 and is stepping up moves to control the spread of the virus.
