In a statement, the Ministry of Health said 383 people are in hospital, including six in ICU.

From tomorrow a second Covid-19 booster will be available, six months after the first one, to anyone aged over 50 and health, aged-care and disability-care workers over the age of 30.

Covid-19 Response Minister Ayesha Verrall has said schools did not stand out in the data as showing high transmission of Covid-19.

The government is unlikely to introduce stricter Covid-19 meaures, such as compulsory face masks in schools or a change in the Covid-19 setting.
