In a statement, the Health Ministry said the new case arrived on 9 March from France via the UAE.

There are 87 active cases of the coronavirus in New Zealand. There have been a total of 2067 cases in this country.

There have been no new cases in the community for more than two weeks. There were two new historical cases reported yesterday, after members of the same household who had negative test results in isolation returned an initial weak positive test a few days after leaving managed isolation.
