    The Ministry of Health's backing our health system in the fight against COVID-19

    The Ministry of Health's backing our health system in the fight against COVID-19


    We've had our first death due to the virus - a West Coast woman in her 70s.

    There are 63 new cases, taking the total number of confirmed and probable cases to 514.

    Director General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield says our health system will do everything it can to support patients with COVID-19.

    He says we have sufficient hospital capacity to manage our current and projected cases and plans are in place to boost capacity - if necessary.
