Apl102220c

MDHHS said that most of the test results (96%) being reported Saturday originated from specimens that were collected from individuals in the past five days.

Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield has urged people to continue practising Covid-safe measures, including wearing face coverings.

The Department of Health confirmed that there were 2,219 additional positive cases of COVID-19 on Friday, bringing the statewide total to 190,579.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

The other cases involved two recent arrivals from the United Kingdom and one who arrived from the United Arab Emirates. The latest numbers of new cases also include an estimated 1,200 backlogged cases, officials say.

The total amount of cases is reflective of the denotification of 12 confirmed cases of the virus.

Health authorities are cheering strong weekend testing numbers, with laboratories completing 5396 tests on Saturday.

The county now sits at 1,650 total cases, with more than 200 cases still active in the county.

Testing is also available across metro Auckland at a number of urgent care clinics and general practices over the long weekend - all tests are free of charge. Auckland would have seven community centres open over the long weekend. If public health officials reach out, answer their calls. The other died in a hospital in Mid-Ulster and was aged 80 or over.

The number of daily poster scans has nearly doubled, since falling to a low of 415,080 on Wednesday.

Bernalillo County, the state's most populous county, recorded the most new infections, with 197, followed by Doña Ana (130), Santa Fe (56) and Curry (54) counties.

Saturday's additional case daily count sees a decrease from Friday's, which showed 2,773 new cases, and a significant dip from Thursday's 3,600 new cases.
