The zone has the highest numbers in the province for people in hospital, with 423, and for deaths, with 680.

But Baker said there clearly was a risk.

Dr Michael Baker says New Zealand is in one of the "most risky phases" with global arrivals increasing and arrival of the new highly-infectious Covid-19 variant.

This meant the country needed to up its controls to match the risk, he said.

East Georgia State College reported five new cases on its Swainsboro campus since Sunday.

More than 1.9 million people have died from the disease worldwide.

What was happening in Brisbane, which is in lockdown after the discovery of the highly contagious coronavirus overseas variant in a hotel quarantine cleaner, could easily happen here, Baker said.

"We have a booking system so we know who is coming back to New Zealand as most have arranged their plans months in advance".


The updated COVID-19 Emergency Measures are in force from January 1, 2021, until January 31, 2021.

The South African strain - 501.V2 - was detected in New Zealand within the past three days.

"There's a vital opportunity in the week before a flight to reduce the chance of getting the virus so that could be the next focus for New Zealand's defence against it". "There is a lot of good news, but it is still many months away, and in the meantime the risk to New Zealand has nearly never been higher".

King County continues to have the highest numbers in Washington, with 67,932 cases and 1,105 deaths.

They say a single case has been confirmed in Alberta, but there is no evidence it has spread to the community.

There are now 402 active cases with five persons in the COVID Intensive Care Unit (ICU), 50 in institutional isolation, 33 in institutional quarantine and 314 in home isolation.

Although no positive cases of coronavirus have been confirmed inside of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office jails, with their inmates, the sheriff's office is now dealing with a Covid-19 outbreak. That's 72 more than the previous record set on New Year's Eve.

Only three of the cases were current and the rest were historical.
