Today we are reporting 2,780 community cases and 336 current hospitalisations.
The 7-day rolling average of community case numbers today is 3,061 — last Thursday it was 3,928.
The 7-day rolling average of hospitalisations today is 416 — last Thursday it was 527.
There are now a total of 1,845 deaths confirmed as attributable to COVID-19, either as the underlying cause of death or as a contributing factor. The 7-day rolling average increase in total deaths attributable to COVID-19 is now seven.
Please note: The daily 1pm COVID-19 update is being fine-tuned to reflect the level of data provided daily on the Ministry of Health website.
The key changes are that the update will now be produced from Monday to Friday and information about the COVID-19 vaccine response, already provided on the website each day during the week, will no longer be included in the daily 1pm update.
These changes will begin after tomorrow (Friday, 26 August 2022).
