Update on the Viking Bay
The All of Government response to the fishing vessel the Viking Bay is currently putting in place a plan to appropriately manage the ship’s return to New Zealand.
This afternoon Customs will be announcing further details of this plan.
Comprehensive health checks, including testing of crew, will be part of this plan.
The ship’s return to New Zealand has been assessed as having a very low health risk to the public.
The total number of COVID-19 tests processed by laboratories to date is 2,351,005.
On Friday, 6,458 tests were processed across New Zealand. Yesterday, 4,881 tests were processed.
The seven-day rolling average is 5,512.

This testing data does not include the number of tests processed by Waikato DHB, as systems remain down as a result of the cyber attack. The Waikato data continues to be recorded manually and monitored. The data will be added to the tally once systems have been restored.
The manual data shows Waikato has been processing around 300 tests a day over the last 7 days.
