A new Covid-19 case linked to the AUT student who tested positive has been announced.
A close contact of the student returned a weak positive test on Saturday and is already in Auckland's quarantine facility.
The Ministry of Health said on Sunday the person was now a confirmed case and also lived at the Vincent Residences in the central city where the student lived.
Test results indicate that this new case is a very recent infection, the Ministry said.
