Active case - confirmed Confirmed cases are people who have received a positive PCR test OR someone who has received a positive result on a Rapid Antigen Test. For more details, see the COVID-19 case definition.
Active case - probable A probable case is when someone is diagnosed based on their exposure to other people with COVID-19 and on their symptoms.

This graph shows the count of all cases of COVID-19 every day (all cases - active, recovered and deceased) since the first New Zealand case in late February 2020. The graph shows the rapidly increasing number of cases day-by-day from late March until the rate slowed through April as the restrictions during Alert Levels 4 and 3 took hold. The number of active cases increased rapidly until mid-April, peaked in early-April during Alert Level 4, and then decreased to low levels of active cases remaining each day from late-May, mainly at the border isolation facilities. Cases increased again from mid-August due to the Auckland August cluster.

This bar graph shows the total cases and their status by District Health Board (DHB) and in managed isolation and quarantine facilities.

The Managed Isolation and Quarantine data group shows the number of cases in managed isolation or quarantine facilities. They are not included in the DHB totals. Before 17 June, people in managed isolation or quarantine facilities were included in the total of the relevant DHB.

Managed isolation and quarantine facilities are located in Auckland (Auckland DHB), Hamilton (Waikato DHB), Rotorua (Lakes DHB), Wellington (Capital and Coast DHB) and Christchurch (Canterbury DHB).
