Four confirmed Covid-19 cases in Taupō

Chris Marshall Reporter from Taupō Times

Some Stuff and Neighbourly readers have been concerned about an accurate count of the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Taupō, as opposed to the whole Lakes DHB area which takes in a population of just over 100,000 and covers 9,570 square kilometres running from north of Rotorua to Turangi in the south, east as far as Kaingaroa Village and west to Mangakino.
In response to this question Dr Phil Shoemack, Medical Officer of Health, Toi Te Ora Public Health said just after 4pm on Tuesday afternoon that confirmed cases in the DHB area are seven in Rotorua and four in Taupō.
Current confirmed cases of Covid-19:
Rotorua - 7
Taupō - 4
