WELLINGTON (HRNW) – New Zealand confirmed a fresh outbreak of Covid-19 in the community Sunday, with a family of three testing positive including a woman who works for a catering firm servicing international flights.
“They are new and active infections,” Health Minister Chris Hipkins said.
Authorities downplayed any link to inflight meals because of an eight-day gap between the woman’s last day at work and when she tested positive.
“There are a number of gaps in our knowledge around these cases,” Hipkins said.
“One of the things I’m looking for is more information on the likely source … that’s still a piece of the puzzle that’s missing.
