January 28th local time, the New Zealand health department announced that it would strengthen the quarantine management of immigration personnel.
After being tested for the novel coronavirus on the 12th day of quarantine, all quarantined people must remain in the room and not go out until their quarantine is over.
Previously, quarantined people could enter the public area of the isolation facility. The government is also studying a number of other restrictions.
On the night of the 27th, two new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Oakland were infected with mutant COVID-19.
The two patients are a father and daughter, who are quarantined in a hotel at the same time as a patient diagnosed in the northern region.
All three were tested for nucleic acid twice before being released from quarantine, and the results were negative.
According to the analysis, all three patients were infected in isolation hotels, and the health department is also investigating the infection route of the three patients.
The quarantined hotel that took place has suspended the admission of new arrivals, while requiring people who have recently left the hotel to stay at home and undergo additional testing within 48 hours, the health department said.
The repeated outbreaks in New Zealand have also made neighboring countries feel uncomfortable about quarantine-free travel.
On 25 January, Australia announced that it would suspend New Zealand tourists from quarantine for at least 72 hours out of “high caution” and that visitors arriving in Australia from New Zealand must be quarantined for 14 days.
The Cook Islands also cancelled flights from New Zealand on January 27.
