The Ministry of Health collects data about cases of COVID-19, clusters, locations of interest and testing in New Zealand.
Current COVID-19 cases
You can get data on:
- the number of confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19
- the location and source of active cases
- cases by district health board (DHB).
COVID-19 case demographics
You can get data on confirmed and probable cases by:
- age and sex
- hospitalisation and intensive care
Source of COVID-19 cases
Data on how the virus has spread in New Zealand, for example imported cases, locally acquired but linked to another case, or locally acquired with no known source.
You can also get data on clusters of cases.
Testing for COVID-19
The Ministry of Health publishes data on:
- total tests completed
- tests by location, for example in managed isolation or by district health board
- tests by ethnicity
- testing rates, including testing by location, ethnicity, and age and sex.
Locations of interest
Locations of interest are places where someone confirmed with COVID-19 visited. If you visited a location of interest at a certain time, you may be classed as a ‘casual contact’. The Ministry of Health lists locations of interest and has advice on what you should do if you are a casual contact.
Managed isolation and quarantine data

The data includes:
- daily data updates
- projected occupancy over the next 14 days
- number of people who have returned to New Zealand
- daily incident reports
- testing data and current COVID-19 cases in managed isolation and quarantine.
COVID-19 modelling reports
The Ministry of Health publishes a series of modelling reports, which help us understand the future health impact of COVID-19 in New Zealand.
