There have been no new cases of Covid-19 in the Southern District Health Board area for the second day running.
The good news for the South comes as the Ministry of Health announced nine new cases across New Zealand today – the second day in a row where new infections have been in single figures.
“I think the variable that we’ve done pretty well with in the South has been testing — because we haven’t just tested contacts. We’ve tested, and as the criteria for testing has been broadened, I think we’ve probably per capita done as much testing in the South as anywhere.”
