Data and statistics

Data and statistics about COVID-19 and our response to it in New Zealand.

COVID-19 data

The Ministry of Health collects data about cases of COVID-19, clusters, locations of interest and testing in New Zealand.

Current cases

You can get data on:

  • any confirmed or probable cases of COVID-19
  • the number of people who have recovered
  • how many people are and have been in hospital
  • cases by district health board (DHB), and by age and gender.

Significant clusters

A cluster is a group of 10 or more COVID-19 cases that are linked because the people were in the same place together.

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.

The Ministry of Health is also recording tests by region and by ethnicity within regions. This gives us an accurate picture of the country’s recovery from COVID-19 and how to continue to respond in the best way. It also helps keep track of who is being tested, including vulnerable communities or at risk groups with underlying health conditions.
