New Zealand's Ministry of Health on Saturday reported one new case of Covid-19 in its managed isolation facilities.
The new case is a woman in her 20s who arrived in New Zealand on July 2 from London via Doha and Sydney.
The woman, who had previously been identified as a close contact of another case, was in managed isolation at a hotel in Christchurch and is now in quarantine. Regular testing was carried out before she tested positive on the sixth day of her arrival, said the ministry.
The ministry said 71 days had passed since the last case of Covid-19 was acquired locally in New Zealand from an unknown source.
The new case brings the total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases to 1,193, which is the number New Zealand reported to the World Health Organization.
The total number of active cases in New Zealand is 24. There is no one in the country receiving hospital-level care for Covid-19.
Laboratories across New Zealand completed 2,057 tests overnight, bringing the total number of tests to 426,776.
