The New Zealand Ministry of Health reported 109 new COVID-19 community cases in Auckland on Monday, October 25, subsequently its second worst day for daily infections.
The ministry statement said that 47 of the cases are already linked and involved 30 household exposures, while investigations are ongoing to bridge 62 unconnected cases.
The ministry announced that 87 percent of its populace have already been vaccinated, while at least 71 percent are fully jabbed.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced last week that the country will ease health restrictions once 90 percent of its people are already fully inoculated. On October 4, Ardern announced that New Zealand will be switching from full elimination of the virus to living with it due to the sudden rise of COVID cases.
New Zealand recorded 28 pandemic deaths and 2,681 cases in the latest outbreak.
