COVID-19 new cases

Two new COVID-19 cases reported in New Zealand on Sunday

Both of these cases are recent arrivals from overseas and both were detected within managed isolation facilities.

The first case is the child of the couple whose cases were announced on Saturday. The second case is a 59-year-old woman who travelled from Delhi and arrived in Auckland on June 15 on flight AI1316. She travelled with her partner who has also been tested, but their result is pending.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield reiterated in a statement on Sunday that new cases at New Zealand's border were always expected as Kiwis return home from overseas.

Beijing tightens controls amid spike in local coronavirus cases

The city has seen more than 100 new cases in the fresh outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

For more than seven weeks Beijing had only registered cases from people travelling in from abroad.

New clusters of coronavirus are "always a concern", said Mike Ryan, the WHO's emergencies programme head.

"But what we do like to see is an immediate response to that and comprehensive set of measures," he added.

What do we know about the new cases?

The fresh outbreak has been linked to city's largest wholesale market, Xinfadi.
