"One additional member of the Pakistan cricket squad has today tested positive during routine testing", the Ministry of Health said. They were still forbidden from training after several players flouted isolation rules.

The result was revealed by New Zealand's ministry of health in its daily COVID-19 update.

Speaking to DawnNews on the programme "Replay", he said: "We respect NZC [New Zealand Cricket] and their government's concern after six of our players tested positive".

The Pakistan cricket squad have been staying at the Chateau on the Park hotel in Christchurch. Both cases have been moved to Auckland's quarantine facility.

"As per usual protocols, the latest case has been interviewed and close contacts, including flight contacts, have been, or are in the process of being, contacted".

The team will next undergo testing on day six of their stay in managed isolation. The person has also been moved to Auckland's quarantine facility.

New Zealand rules see those in isolation tested on the third and 12th day of the isolation period, and it was a third-day test of players and officials that the seventh player tested positive.

"The ministry and Auckland Regional Public Health Service are working together on arranging testing for the final close contact".

It is worth mentioning that Pakistan's squad was divided into four groups at their arrival in New Zealand and each group was physically disconnected from other groups.

Today the Ministry of Health also reiterated the need for shoppers visiting stores to take advantage of Black Friday weekend deals to be vigilant.

Shopping malls are packed across the country in the shopping event of the year.

The Pakistan cricket team has been hit with another blow, with a seventh player testing positive to COVID-19 in New Zealand.

Yesterday there were seven new Covid-19 cases in managed isolation, but the figure included six Pakistani cricketers that had already been announced.

"With regards to the positive test results of six players, the PCB had shared the outcomes of all the tests conducted by one of the most reputed and credible laboratories with the New Zealand government and they were satisfied".
