COVID-19 deaths​

Today we are sadly reporting the deaths of 17 people with COVID-19.

These deaths take the total number of publicly reported deaths with COVID-19 to 1,039 and the 7-day rolling average of reported deaths is 14.

Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; three were from the Auckland region, three were from the Wellington region, two were from Northland, two were from Canterbury, two were from the Southern region, and one each from Waikato, Tairāwhiti, Mid Central, Hawke’s Bay, and Nelson Marlborough.

One person was in their 50s, one was in their 60s, four were in their 70s, five were in their 80s and six were over 90.

Of these people, 13 were women and four were men.

This is a very sad time for whānau and friends and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this time.

Out of respect, we will be making no further comment on these deaths.

This thing does not seem to be going away...at all.
I estimate maybe towards late spring, early summer. By the end of the year maybe? We may see it down below 500 cases a day.

America's having another surge. A lot of their late night presenters are down with it. Jimmy Fallon has just got the virus for the 2nd time. It's not going away over there.

Just had a look at the Aus stats, you don’t hear a thing about it anymore.
Slight downtrend in NSW but still consistent around the 10k cases. In day to day life you’d have no idea it existed, no need for masks anywhere, no sign ins, the odd place has sanitiser at the door but otherwise I think airports are the only place you’d know it exists- even trains and buses don’t require masks or social distance anymore

Some people commented that businesses creamed it with the covid support:

Unpaid PAYE and KiwiSaver payments have nearly doubled in the past five years, and levels of overdue GST have nearly tripled over the period, Inland Revenue figures show.

A Weekend Herald analysis of Inland Revenue's annual reports shows debts related to overdue PAYE and KiwiSaver payments rose from $336.2 million in 2017 to stand at $919.6m last year. Meanwhile over the same period outstanding GST debt surged to $1.5 billion from $825.6m.

While the Covid crisis is responsible for a decent proportion of the increase - with business tax debt writeoffs doubling to $813m between 2020 and 2021.


Our businesses and economy has been straining trying to struggle through covid.

I've had cold symptoms and a head ache all week. Haven't tested positive at all.

The whole household had it but no one tested positive.

We had a girl at work who was sick but never tested positive and her doctor told her she has long covid. So thinking we may have had covid in the house but might be an issue with how we are doing the tests or something.

Tests on the youngest is probably a wash as it takes 15 minutes to catch him and then he still fights while we are doing it.

At Coolangatta when I left to come home I would have said 1 in 50 were wearing a mask, wasn't policed
