New Zealand confirms 13 more cases related to Auckland’s recent outbreak

New Zealand government’s director general of health Ashley Bloomfield reported thirteen new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday relating to the four members of an Auckland family who tested positive Tuesday after leaving the country for 102 days without registration locally transmitted infections.

On Tuesday, New Zealand registered its first four cases of local transmission after nearly four months with no such infections as authorities scramble to pinpoint the origin of the outbreak, which has led the government to order quarantine in the EU city of Auckland.

Although the detention measures are due to end on Friday night this week, the authorities may decide to extend them based on the recent cases.

Bloomfield has reported that all of these people could be placed in facilities that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s administration has set up to treat and monitor the development of the disease.
