On Friday, there were 17 domestic cases, with one outside quarantine; on Saturday, all 13 domestic cases recorded came from those in quarantine; but yesterday, six new domestic cases were found, all from people outside of quarantine.

Five people are currently hospitalised with the virus. 351 people are currently in quarantine, with another 169 in isolation. The 14-day incidence of infection per 100,000 people is now 39.8, up from 31.1 last week, while incidence at border screening is now at 4.9, down from 5.5 last week.

32,609 people have so far been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus as of April 22nd. Note that “fully vaccinated” means at least two weeks have passed since receiving both vaccinations. 48,112 vaccinations are underway. 80,721 people have received at least the first dose, while 113,330 have received both shots.
