    A ship from the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea could be the source of our latest community case Covid-19

    A ship from the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea could be the source of our latest community case Covid-19


    It's still unclear how the electronic maintenance ports worker caught it.

    The man had worked on the ship in Auckland and wore PPE while on board.

    Dr Ashley Bloomfield says genomic sequencing shows the strain hasn't been seen in New Zealand before.

    He says it's pleasing to know it's not linked to the recent August outbreak.

    Napier Port is refusing to allow logging ship Ken Rei to dock, with 21 crew on board.
