Coronavirus - Day 26 of Lockdown in NZ
Total coronavirus cases across NZ is 1440
An increase of 9 new cases
Death Toll across NZ remains at 12
Number in Hospital 14 - with 3 of these in intensive care, 2 in critical condition

-These statistic are for the whole of NZ and usually announced daily at 1pm via a live broadcast on national TV.
- However, today’s broadcast was delayed until 4pm for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s announcement that NZ would move from Alert Level 4 to Level 3 at 11.59pm Monday 29th April - an extra five days of present lockdown.
- Level 3 is designed to allow more economic activity while community socialising remains very much restricted.
- Following two weeks at Alert Level 3 the government will reassess the situation.
