981 new community cases of COVID – MOH

Ministry of Health figures released announce there are 981 new community COVID cases today.

Testing results are by way of the PCR test.

Last week, Sweden, with more than 50,000 cases of COVID per day, lifted all COVID restrictions, and declared that the virus was a not a threat to public health. Sweden joins a growing list of countries, including Norway, Denmark, Ireland and the UK to remove all or most COVID restrictions.

‘Fully vaccinated’ patients continue to make up the highest number of COVID hospitalisations in the Northern Region wards, while 55% strangely appear to have an ‘unknown’ vaccination status.


  • Cases in hospital: Total Number 39: Whangārei: 1; North Shore: 4; Middlemore: 9; Auckland: 20; Waikato: 1; Rotorua: 1, Wellington 1, Christchurch: 2.
  • Average age of current hospitalisations: 55
  • Cases in ICU or HDU: 0
  • Vaccination status of current hospitalisations (Northern Region only, excluding Emergency Departments): Unvaccinated or not eligible (4 cases / 12%); partially immunised <7 days from second dose or have only received one dose (1 case / 3%); fully vaccinated at least 7 days before being reported as a case (10 cases / 30%); unknown (18 cases / 55%).


  • Seven day rolling average of community cases: 468
  • Seven day rolling average of border cases: 27
  • Number of new community cases: 981
  • Location of new community cases: Northland (21), Auckland (768), Waikato (82), Bay of Plenty (23), Lakes (12), Hawke’s Bay (5), MidCentral (5), Taranaki (1), Tairawhiti (6), Wairarapa (12), Wellington (6), Hutt Valley (14), Nelson Marlborough (2), Canterbury (4), South Canterbury (1), Southern (19).
  • Number of new cases identified at the border: 25 (eight of which are historical)
  • Location of origin of border cases: India (2), Malaysia (1), Unknown (14).
  • Number of active community cases (total): 4,960 (cases identified in the past 21 days and not yet classified as recovered)

  1. “Testing results are by way of the PCR test.”

    In other words we haven’t got a clue how many people have the Omicron cold in the community. When you combine the hopelessly inaccurate PCR test results with the probability that a huge number of sensible people will not bother getting tested you might as well pluck any three to five figure number out of the air and claim that is the number of new “cases.”

    Time to end ALL restrictions and mandates as Sweden has. Those who want the jab have had ample time and opportunity to get it if they feel it will offer them some protection (which it won’t).

  2. Reading the latest UKHSA report (February 10th) feels surreal. The boosted Brits’ case rates are, in some categories, over TWICE the vaccine-free case rates. The former went up, while the latter came down. For example, for 40-49 year olds, the case rate is 4,687 per 100,000 in the boosted, and only 1,726 in the vaccine-free. Do the math: the boosted are 2.71 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO GET COVID.

    Could this be the reason the vaccination status of the 55% appears to be strangely unknown – sheer embarrassment?
