New Zealand reported six new cases of COVID-19 with five imported and one in the community on Saturday, said the Ministry of Health in a statement.
The five imported cases were recent returnees in managed isolation, and the community case was a border worker already in quarantine for the past two weeks, said the ministry.
The border worker, who tested positive after 12 days in quarantine, was a close contact of one of the existing positive cases in the November Auckland cluster. The individual had a negative test seven days earlier.
There are currently 42 active cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand and the total number of confirmed cases in the country has reached 1,663.
Laboratories across New Zealand processed 7,014 tests for COVID-19, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 1,224,397. (/Xinhua)
