A 2nd Covid source

Stuff reports:

Cases of coronavirus in New Zealand have increased by 13.

Twelve of them are linked to a cluster in Auckland, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield announced on Tuesday, while another is still under investigation.

Meanwhile, genome testing has shown another Auckland case of Covid-19 is not connected to the existing cluster.

The case that was not linked to the existing cluster was found after a possible connection between two cases was confirmed on Monday in Auckland and an outbreak in the community was under investigation.

They key thing here is the man with the infection not linked to the current cluster was only tested because of the Government’s belated catch up with testing frontline staff.

It makes you wonder how many cases over the last few weeks were missed because the Government wasn’t testing frontline staff, as they promised.

Let’s just hope there are no more clusters.
