I saw a couple of these links but I got the feeling they were reported under the 13 new community transmission cases yesterday.....17 total is the last I heard.

But new info that one of the students studies in Auckland but lives 2 hours outside Auckland I think. Thankfully had been kept from school since having symptoms.

No they are new cases.

From the ABC News Website (Live: Victoria records 372 new coronavirus cases and 14 deaths, New Zealand details new infections):

New Zealand's Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield has announced 13 confirmed or probable new infections in New Zealand. He provides a bit of a breakdown:

Two of the 13 new cases are in Tokoroa. These two people being positive after following up with members of the Auckland cluster. We'll continue to put details of each of the new cases on the Ministry of Health website. All of the 13 new cases bar one have already been linked to existing cases and to that cluster. For the 13th case - and that person is currently in hospital - the link is still under investigation.

The total number of active cases in NZ now is 48. 30 have been linked to the known outbreak in the community.

Contact tracers have identified 771 close contacts and 514 had been contacted so far, representing an 83% success rate of tracing close contacts within the desired 48-hour period.

15,703 tests were processed around NZ yesterday — the highest number of tests processed in a single day.


NZ Govt are "asking that all positive cases and, where relevant, their family members or household members, transfer to the Quarantine Auckland facility in Auckland for those cases, so we can greatly reduce the risk of transmission, especially within households, and any inadvertent transmission into the community. Currently, 38 people linked to the cluster have already moved into the Auckland Quarantine facility. This includes the cases and household members"

More than 17...

New Zealand's health authorities are rushing to test all border workers as 13 more cases of COVID-19 were detected today, including two outside of Auckland.
The island nation is scrambling to clamp down on a fresh outbreak 102 days after the country became COVID-free.
There are now 48 active cases of coronavirus in New Zealand, including 30 connected to the family cluster in Auckland.

In a sign of hope for New Zealand, all but one of the 30 cases transmitted in the community have been traced back to that original family cluster, first detected in a finance worker in Auckland.
That case – the most recent to be diagnosed – is a person currently being treated in an Auckland hospital.

NZ Ministry of Health.

Current situation
There are 13 new cases of COVID-19 today.

As is our usual protocol we are tracing all close and casual contacts of these cases, and getting them tested for COVID-19. All close contacts will remain in self-isolation for 14 days, and all casual contacts will remain in self isolation until they have returned a negative test.

There are now 49 active cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand. See our current cases page.

Note that there are 19 active cases in Managed isolation and quarantine (ie International travellers).

Thanks.

I must have been reading today’s media reports just before the 14/8 Ministry update of case details was published.

A lot of the regions are close to double of yesterday hence my probable confusion.

So 30 now (including 1 probable).

Just watched some of the media update today at 5:30pm NZ time.

NZ Government has extended the duration of Level 3 in Auckland and Level 2 in the rest of NZ from the initial 3 days to 14 days. More a precautionary extension, just to make sure things are as they currently seem.

Edit: The cluster seems to have started 31 July. That is the earliest symptom of one of the employees at the cold storage facility. At present no link to MIQ.

After all, that's what great leadership delivers, doesn't it? It finds solutions to tough problems, owns them and delivers on them. I'll reiterate, we don't have that kind of leadership here.
Pretty much proves my point that there is no common national leadership being shown here.
even though they have the power and probably should be" is pretty much the textbook definition of "a lack of leadership" in my books...
I think we get the argument, or rather, opinion.

To me, the greatest display of leadership was the creation of the bipartisan National Cabinet which from all accounts has worked exceptionally well.

A leader can only lead in the jurisdictional areas that apply in our National and State Constitutions. In prior cases where the states' control and implementation has been messy, the Feds have attempted to take control (eg by using the Corporations Law), but that ability is limited. The Feds, for instance, can only 'offer' the ADF to the States.

Getting back to NZ, as has been noted a number of times, its much easier for the Ardern government to control the pandemic there as they hold all the relevant powers; much easier to appear a great leader.

While I note in today's news that NZ is checking the genomes of the two Americold CV19 Case in Melbourne against their current cases that two day ago that it was reported (and my bolding):


Richard Winnall, Americold's Australia and New Zealand managing director, said the company's positive cases worked alongside a man in his 50s who had already tested positive to the virus.
He also told the ABC there had been two positive cases of COVID-19 at Americold's Melbourne plant in Laverton North in recent weeks.
However, he was adamant there could be no link between cases at the two facilities, as the Melbourne warehouse does not ship freight to the company's Auckland plant.
He said the Auckland facilities received imported goods from 15 countries, including Australia, China and the United States.


So the cross checking is most likely just to rule it out as a possibility (at least from the Melbourne Americold Facility). The only much less plausible path would be Melbourne, to elsewhere in Oz and then onto NZ (and that most likely does not happen). The various experts, including the NZ Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield, also all seem to believe that CV19 transmission caught by this means is extremely unlikely.

More likely that it’s been bubbling along quietly and just poked its head up for a breather.

Which, if that's the case, and which didnt result in any serious consequences, not even a hospital admission let alone death, creates an enitrely different situation for management.

I'm sure it will come out somehow they were in some contact from a Victorian...
I was only joking with the above comment - I wonder if the blood thirsty journalists will get stuck into Dan during his daily dribble.

Well not really, the vast majority of infections across a large population result in mild outcomes, that hasn’t really changed. The tricky thing is our populations are so big because it’s so infectious.

Yes, it certainly does. In any case, the Kiwis have done very well, all things considered.
