Racing in the Prada Cup- Day 2

Australia on Sunday reported two new local COVID-19 cases in the country's second most populous state, Victoria, on the second day of a snap lockdown to contain the spread of the highly infectious United Kingdom variant.

"This evening, I want to speak to the rest of New Zealand, as well as the people of South Auckland", he said.

A number of new locations of interest relating to the three new community Covid-19 cases have been released.

New Zealand's Covid 19 minister Chris Hipkins confirmed on Sunday at amn emergency press conference that authorities were tracing close contacts in order to carry out tests on them.

Ms Ardern announced that the city's schools would remain open for the children of parents who need to work, but otherwise students will be asked to stay at home.

Three members of a south Auckland family - a father, mother and daughter - tested positive for the virus.

Airlines have been contacted, as the woman in the infected family works for an airline catering company, LSG Sky Chefs, where she mostly works in laundry facilities, officials said.

Ardern on Sunday cancelled her plans to attend the Big Gay Out, a large Auckland festival that celebrates the rainbow community.

As a precaution, the high school of the girl in the family will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, with COVID-19 testing facilities to be set up there, officials said.

People should work from home, where possible, she said.

New Zealand's greatest vulnerability has been at the border.

"Our system has swung into action, we are gathering all of the facts as quickly as we can", Mr Hipkins said. "But as we have kept saying, there is no such thing as no risk". "We all have that feeling of "not again", she said.

As at 1.30pm, there had been no change to New Zealand's level 1 status, Hipkins said this afternoon.

"Acting with an abundance of caution is a good idea until we have information about what variant it is, this is just the way that you put a stop on the transmission chain while gathering more information so hopefully the three days is all we'll need". "Please keep following the health guidelines including scanning the COVID Tracer app-this is the best way to keep everyone safe".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the first batch of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine will arrive in New Zealand next week.

On Saturday, Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said a person who tested positive for the virus while in mandatory isolation died after being moved to North Shore Hospital in Auckland.

"Three days should give us enough time to gather further information, undertake large-scale testing and establish if there has been wider community transmission", Ardern said.
