|Total cases since first NZ case||Total tests for COVID-19 to date|
Note: This table shows the number of tests, and some people are tested more than once.
Cases by ethnicity
|Ethnicity*||Active (confirmed and probable)||Recovered||Deceased||Total cases since first case||Percentage of all cases|
|Middle Eastern, Latin American and African (MELAA)||13||88||2||103||4.3%|
|European or Other||19||1393||18||1430||59.5%|
* The prioritised ethnicity classification system is used in this table and below. This means each person is allocated to a single ethnic group, based on the ethnic groups they identify with. Where people identify with more than one group, they are assigned in this order of priority: Māori, Pacific Peoples, Asian, and European/Other. So, if a person identifies as being Māori and New Zealand European, the person is counted as Māori. See Ngā tapuae me ngā raraunga: Methods and data sources for further information.
The data categorized by ethnicity come from National Health Index (NHI) data collection, linked to data held in the EpiSurv database.
