Covid 19 coronavirus update: Health officials assess Pakistan Cricket team’s day nine tests

There are no new cases of covid-19 in New Zealand today, the health ministry says.

The last time there were no new cases detected at the border or in the community was on October 19.

But Pakistan cricketers and fans still have to wait to hear whether they can train as authorities process test results.

Seven of the squad are infected with Covid.

The decision about training and new cases was announced at 1pm when the Ministry of Health delivered its daily update.

Yesterday the ministry said any exemption from managed isolation requirements to allow the international cricketers scheduled to play New Zealand in a T20 clash on December 18 was still under consideration.

This would depend largely on the results of the team’s routine day nine tests, which are still pending.

The team, which was put on final notice by the Government after breaching a number of managed isolation rules, remains holed up at the Chateau on the Park in Christchurch.

The total number of confirmed cases remains at 1713, the ministry said in a statement.
There are currently 61 active cases of infection in the country.

Yesterday laboratories processed 6846 tests for Covid-19, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 1,298,455.
