The total number of New Zealand’s community cases of coronavirus rose to 10 on Wednesday, after three more Delta cases of COVID-19 were confirmed today. New cases include a fully-vaccinated nurse from an Auckland hospital.

Nine of these cases have been linked to other community cases that resulted in the country’s second national top level lockdown starting Tuesday midnight. The remaining case has been linked to the border, according to the Ministry of Health.
