The Ministry of Health today will provide an update on current Covid-19 cases in New Zealand, including security guard MIQ who tested positive for the virus.

General Manager Ashley Bloomfield yesterday announced that the 24-year-old Grand Millennium worker, who was tested on Tuesday, had returned a positive result. The man reported having a sore throat for four days.

Readings from an initial PCR test suggested the man may have been early in his infection, near the end, or had a historical case.

However, a second test yesterday confirmed it was a current issue.

The husband lives alone and test results from four members of a neighboring house were all negative. A colleague of his who often led the security guard to and from work also came out negative.

No place of interest had been identified yet, and the Ministry of Health said the risk to the wider community was low.

The infected worker had not yet been vaccinated and it was understood the man had missed two appointments to receive the stroke for personal reasons, the ministry said. Further information was being sought from his employer.

As part of follow-up actions in response to the case, the frequency of testing for staff in the Great Millennium increased on a weekly basis for the next two weeks.

An infection control check instead of the Great Millennium was undertaken yesterday in response to the new case, as well as cleaners who caught the virus at the same facility last month.

Yesterday there were also 19 new cases of Covid-19 in managed isolation. All cases came through the UAE and 16 originated from India. Four historical cases were also confirmed.

The point in the positive cases arriving in the country, mostly from India, prompted Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to announce yesterday a temporary suspension of flights from India from Sunday. He will stay in the country until April 28.

While arrivals from India had prompted the risk assessment, Ardern said the government would look into the risks posed by Covid’s other hot spots.

Health teams would use the time until April 28 to try and plan safer ways to receive travelers from India.

She wanted to look at the quality of Covid PCR testing in other countries and whether the tests were being taken in the 72 hours before departure.

It was very clear from the fact that New Zealand had had more than 60 cases in MIQ over the past two weeks that the Government had to review its options to reduce risk, she said.
