NZ reports 14,494 COVID-19 circumstances, 8 deaths

New Zealand’s COVID-19 death toll is climbing at its fastest rate of the pandemic, with another eight deaths recorded.

On Sunday, the health ministry reported six deaths from Auckland, the hardest-hit region, as well as one in the Waikato and another in Rotorua.

The country’s death toll stands at 113.

A third of those deaths, 37, occurred in the past 10 days during the Omicron wave.

While Sunday’s daily case numbers were the lowest this month, hospitalisations grew again to a nationwide record of 896.

Officials reported 14,494 new community cases on Sunday, though doubt surrounds the accuracy of that number after a switch to home testing.
