Coronavirus: Planning 'well underway' to reintegrate New Zealanders after quarantine in Whangaparaoa

The Ministry of Health says planning is "well underway" to reintegrate New Zealanders back into society after being quarantined at a camp in Whangaparaoa.

There are 157 people at the camp - 98 New Zealanders and 59 non-New Zealanders. They were evacuated from the coronavirus epicentre Wuhan and arrived in Aotearoa on February 5.

The Ministry of Health's director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield says their quarantine period will end on Wednesday.

"Our planning is well underway for those people to be integrated back into the community here in New Zealand. Or for those who are from overseas for arrangements to be made for them to be repatriated."

More information will be made available on Wednesday about the people at the camp.

Dr Bloomfield also confirmed that while there have been 67 coronavirus tests in New Zealand, they have all come back negative and there are currently no suspected cases in the country.

Almost 4400 people in New Zealand have registered with Healthline to say they're self-isolating for the coronavirus, Dr Bloomfield says.

Healthline is proactively contacting those who have registered, and everyone should have received "at least one phone call".

"All of those people have taken seriously the quest and expectation that they self isolate," he says.

"This is an inconvenience to them… I want to thank the thousands of people that have inconvenienced themselves."

The total number of deaths from coronavirus in China reached 1310 on Monday. There are 48,206 total cases in the virus' epicentre of Hubei province.
