Changes to the SDHB COVID-19 Daily Update  

Beginning the week of 16 May 2022, the Southern DHB COVID-19 Daily Update will transition to a twice weekly update on a Tuesday and Friday. This includes the accompanying infographic. Outside of this time, data can be acquired via the Ministry of Health website. COVID-19 related media releases will occur outside this schedule if there is reason to do so and daily break down of cases in the region by territorial authority will recommence if the situation changes.

Please note, the Ministry of Health’s daily reported cases may differ slightly from those reported at a DHB or local public health unit level. This is because of different reporting cut off times and the assignment of cases between regions, for example when a case is tested outside their usual region of residence. Total numbers will always be the formal daily case tally as reported to the WHO. Due to the increased use of RATs and system lag issues there may be a discrepancy in the number of total active cases from the territorial authority breakdown. A decision has been made nationally that areas with less than 5 new cases per 24-hour period will be reported as “<5”. All territorial authorities with less than 100 cases will have their case numbers rounded to the nearest 5. We are unable to supply further information. Please contact the Ministry of Health directly for more information about these decisions.
