Omicron BA.5 variant update​

A further two people who have travelled from overseas to New Zealand have been confirmed as having the BA.5 variant of Omicron.

Both people travelled to New Zealand and subsequently returned a positive RAT and PCR results. Whole genome sequencing subsequently confirmed the BA.5 variant. Following the first BA.5 case reported on Sunday, there are now three people who are confirmed to have the variant, all of whom travelled from South Africa.

Both BA.4 and BA.5 have been reported in Southern Africa and Europe, and both variants have been detected in Australia. The arrival of the BA.5 sub-variant in New Zealand is not unexpected.

At this stage, the public health settings already in place to manage other Omicron variants are assessed to be appropriate for managing BA.5 and no changes are required.

The BA.5 Omicron subvariants is being monitored by the World Health Organization (WHO).

It can take weeks or months to assess the severity of each new variant or sub-variant, so the Ministry of Health will continue to monitor the emerging evidence closely.

COVID-19 deaths​

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

Of the people whose deaths we are reporting today; one person was from Wairarapa and the other was from Whanganui.

Both were male and in their 80s.

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

I don't know anyone that's had Covid in the last month after a period where every second person I knew seemed to have it.

My son's father-in-law left here to visit them in London and caught it on the day he arrived, probably at Gatwick.

One million confirmed cases​

Today we have reached a total of 1,001,898 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic in 2020. This time last year, our confirmed case total was 2,288.

New Zealander’s collective response to COVID-19 helped us to keep our case numbers low, especially in that first year when the virus was rampant internationally.

“I would like to reiterate my thanks to everyone in New Zealand who has played their part to keep our case numbers and rates low when compared internationally, and for continuing to do their bit to follow public health advice and minimise the spread of COVID-19,” says Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield.

Are we numb to covid deaths now?

Pretty consistent the fatalities, but people don’t seem concerned anymore.

The tail is long with a dark winter looming…

We are pretty much back to normal here. The only place I can think of where tests and PPE are still being asked for are hospitals, care homes and the like. Everywhere else is as we were two and a half years ago

Similar in Aus (well NSW anyway) life’s as it was, the odd person being off for a week or so with covid but essentially like someone getting a bug precovid. Used to watch case numbers and deaths each day but no idea what they’ve been for quite some time now
