29 March 2020 : The New Zealand Ministry of Health has confirmed today that out of the 514 Covid-19 cases to date, approximately 2.3% are Pacific people.
In a media conference with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern this afternoon, Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said, “We’ve just been able to do that breakdown today and we will provide that on the website but off the top of my head Māori so far are 4% of cases and Pacific 2.3%.”
This makes the estimated number approximately 20 Māori and 11 Pacific people.
This is the first time we have seen specific numbers related to Māori and Pacific people.
1NEWS/TVNZ reported New Zealand had its first death linked to COVID-19 on the West Coast early this morning. The deceased was a woman in her seventies who had initially been admitted with what was thought to be influenza complicated by an underlying chronic health condition.
“As we have seen around the world, COVID-19 can be a deadly disease – particularly for elderly people, and those with underlying pre-existing health issues,” the Ministry of Health says.
“This latest sad news reinforces the importance of our move to Alert Level Four, and the measures we are all taking to limit spread, break the chain of transmission and prevent deaths.”
Remember to stay safe, stay home within your bubble, maintain social distancing and be kind.
