Covid-19 update: 9953 new community cases, 767 in hospital and 32 further deaths | RNZ News – New Zealand

From tomorrow the Ministry of Health will be changing the way that it reports Covid-19 hospitalisations and deaths.

In terms of hospitalisations, the ministry will separate out whether the main reason they were in hospital was due to Covid-19 or if Covid-19 was a contributing factor.

The ministry will be making a similar change to reporting deaths, away from all people who have died within 28 days of a Covid-19 infection to people who have died because of a Covid-19 infection or where it was a contributing factor.
