The Ministry of Health has managed to track down and test 1269 people who were in managed isolation between June 9 and 16.

The other three are in quarantine at the Jet Park facility in Auckland.

The second is a women in her 20s who arrived from the United States on June 18, she is the wife of a previous case and was already in quarantine facilities because she is considered a close contact.

The fourth case is a man in his 30s who was isolating at the Haka Hotel in Auckland since June 24 after arriving on AI1316.

"Following the onset of symptoms, he was taken by ambulance to Auckland City Hospital last night and was tested for COVID-19 as part of a clinical assessment".

One of the new cases - a man in his 30s - is in Auckland City Hospital in a stable condition on a ward. He tested positive on day three and three close family contacts who have been travelling with him have also been tested, with two negative results and a third pending.

Yesterday there were four new cases of COVID-19 at the border, bringing the active number of cases to 20. They are all in isolation and there are no cases in the community. The ministry is asking those people to please call the health line on 09 302 0408.

Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said they had all gone through 14 days of managed isolation and the risk of them having the virus was low.

"While today's news that one of our recent cases is in hospital may be concerning to some, it is something the health system in New Zealand has remained prepared for".

More than 350 people who have been through managed isolation have gone incommunicado.

The Ministry said 5321 tests were carried out yesterday and there have now been a total of 392,756 tests.
