New Zealand has recorded 13 new COVID cases in Auckland, all of whom will go into quarantine.
All of the new cases are linked to the original four confirmed cases from the new outbreak in the citys south, which was first reported on Tuesday night.
One additional person is in managed isolation - a woman in her 30s who arrived from the Philippines.
New Zealands health chief Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the total number of active cases is now 36.
Two of the new cases are children under the age of nine.
It comes after three more staff members at the Americold warehouse centre in Auckland tested positive to COVID-19. The three staffers worked alongside a man who already tested positive.

NZ needs to talk to Sweden.
I go for zoonotic spread.
There were those mink in Sweden; sheep in NZ seem just as likely a source.
The virus is going to do its thing, whether we hide in our homes, social distance, or wear these stupid masks! Unless these 14 people are elderly, or have some preexisting conditions, they will survive!
This freaking hysteria needs to end!
Gone today. Here tomorrow.
Our community is having a spike 3 weeks AFTER a mask ordinance.
So, uh, why are we masking?
Well, if you’re going to use a mask, use it right.
14? That right there is what you call a pandemic.
Yeah, will be interesting to see the evidence of where the new cases came from
I expect the source to be zoonotic- probably sheep.
Never see in the media the cost their lockdown has inflicted on NZ.
NZ election may be postponed
Ms Ardern hinted the country’s general election may be postponed in the wake of the latest coronavirus cluster.

Led by UCSF graduate student Michael Schoof, a team of researchers engineered a completely synthetic, production-ready molecule that straitjackets the crucial SARS-CoV-2 machinery that allows the virus to infect our cells. As reported in a new paper, now available on the preprint server bioRxiv, experiments using live virus show that the molecule is among the most potent SARS-CoV-2 antivirals yet discovered.

See my post above- there may be a powerful inhaled aerosolized medicine folks could take to prevent them from getting the virus at all- meaning the left would lose their ability to mask everyone-
sorry- posted too soon-
The inhaled medicine is simple to take, once a day- and would defeat any virus that gets in according to the article- and would actually, if it pans out, be more effective than the vaccine in those folks for whom the vaccine didn’t work- if peopel had this inhaler, or nasal spray, they wouldn’t even need the vaccine IF the spray does what they claim it will do it seems
I think cargo (via ships) still continue to be unloaded, and it’s probably passing via crew-members of the ships.
That’s certainly possible.
But my money is on zoonotic transmission- which is proven to occur.
Yes. One would think the adults here would not have succumbed to this crap. It appears those posting threads non-stop are thrill and attention seekers.
The liberals will answer that by saying you need to be wearing new masks everyday with out giving a reason why we need to be wearing new masks.
New Zealand is one party state. Why even bother with elections?
Lol true- kinda like Russia- or China-
