One person is currently hospitalised with the virus. 251 people are currently in quarantine, with another 50 in isolation. The 14-day incidence of infection per 100,000 people is now 11.7, up from 9.3 last week, while incidence at border screening is now at 3.8, up from 2.2 last week.

101,713 people have so far been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus as of June 7th. Note that “fully vaccinated” means at least two weeks have passed since receiving both vaccinations. 86,496 vaccinations are underway, while 188,209 people have received at least the first dose.
