Wellington — New Zealand's government on Friday extended a lockdown of its largest city Auckland for another 12 days as it tries to stamp out its first domestic coronavirus outbreak in more than three months.


The outbreak has grown to 30 people and extended beyond Auckland for the first time. Until the cluster was discovered Tuesday, New Zealand had gone 102 days without infections spreading in the community. The only known cases were travelers quarantined after arriving from abroad.

Health authorities believe the virus must have been reintroduced from overseas, but genome testing hasn't found a link with any of the quarantined travelers. That has prompted authorities to investigate whether shipping workers were a source, after several employees at a food storage facility were infected.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said extending the Auckland lockdown, which began Wednesday, would give authorities time to get a handle on the virus cluster and isolate those infected.


"Together, we have got rid of COVID before," Ardern said in a highly anticipated address. "We have kept it out for 102 days, longer than any other country. We have been world-leading in our COVID response, with the result that many lives were saved and our economy was getting going faster than almost anywhere else. We can do all of that again."

All of the new cases in the outbreak appear to be linked through family or work connections. The only known infections outside Auckland are two people in the central North Island town of Tokoroa who were visited by infected family members from Auckland. Officials said they thought the chances were low the virus would spread further in Tokoroa.

Several of those infected work at an Americold food storage facility in the Auckland suburb of Mt. Wellington. Officials are looking at the possibility that workers on a freight ship or at the port may have spread the infections, despite physical distancing requirements at those sites and orders preventing ship workers coming ashore.

Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said they were doing rigorous testing at Auckland's port "as part of our investigation just to follow that chain of the Americold goods that might have come in through the port and been transported to that Mt. Wellington depot."

Officials are also investigating the possibility the virus could have survived from abroad on chilled or frozen food boxes and then infected workers in New Zealand, a scenario they consider unlikely.

Bloomfield said they completed a record of more than 15,000 tests Thursday and they were getting a clearer picture of the outbreak's contours.

"All of the cases so far, at this point, are connected. They are all part of one Auckland-based cluster," said Health Minister Chris Hipkins. "And that is good news."

The outbreak has cast doubt on whether New Zealand's general election will go ahead as planned next month and has halted political campaigning. Ardern said she would decide by Sunday whether to delay the election, which she can do by up to about two months under New Zealand law. Opinion polls indicate Ardern's Labour Party is favored to win a second term.

it woudl work in their case, as it was detected fast enough that it jsut a region its in. in our case, they are all over. if we lock back down, as soon as u go to market, or bank or to pay tax or to vote or sumting, it will spread back. because there are so many persons with it, and so widely distributed. u will see the cases high, then slow down, and as soon as u reopen, the cases will resume. because it is so widespread already.
what we doing now(sans elections) is the best way.

^the hope is at least when it slows down the contact tracing can now keep up and track down all contacts & quarantine them- should really be in state quarantine as too many family members getting infected

i only joking because I don't know how else to deal with the impending sense of doom. This thing already reach in the prisons service, police service, coast guard and hospital populations. Total chaos is incoming. Death of a level we have never seen in this country. rioting. health services impacted for generations when experienced doctors and nurses die. maybe even me, dead. other people dead. I sleeping 10 hours a day now and still feeling sleepy. this thing have to be a bad dream

Nurses' head: Covid19 figures may be 5-6 times 'official' numbers

President of the TT Registered Nurses' Association (TTRNA) Idi Stuart has suggested the actual numbers of covid19 cases may be five or six times the number officially recorded.

Giving an example of a nurse who tried to get herself tested, he said, "It's almost like they don't want to test them.

"So we are aware we should multiply current figures by five or six to get an idea of what our actual caseload is in TT."

When Newsday spoke with Stuart on Friday, he said two of the most recent cases of covid19 were nurses assigned to the maternity block of the Port of Spain General Hospital.

Stuart said both nurses were told to stay at home until health authorities could pick them up and take them to a quarantine facility, but he did not know if that had been done up to Friday afternoon.

He said the cases have caused some concern among staff, who felt testing was not being done fast enough to allow for timely quarantine.

"It has caused some unease with the pace with which testing was being done and the continued refusal by the testing agencies to carry out testing on healthcare workers unless they meet specific criteria.

"I had a nurse who was a primary contact herself who went for testing herself as a precaution and was turned down at her health facility in her area and told to go to St Joseph. She spent the whole day waiting in St Joseph for testing."

Stuart said there was need for a more efficient testing method for nurses to better prevent against the spread of the virus and warned that unless quick testing was made available to suspected cases, a larger surge of infections was possible.

"It should be done immediately, not having to wait for a week to pass. It's taking too long.

"We are already in August. From March to now we have had six months of experience with covid, and we should be working much more efficiently. If we can't control it within the health community, we won't be able to control it in the wider community."
