Another three historical cases were also detected in MIQ, the Ministry of Health revealed in a press release on Wednesday afternoon.

Of the three new cases, two came direct from the United Arab Emirates and another direct from the United States. This trio has been transferred to the Jet Park Hotel, Auckland's quarantine facility.

Of the historical cases, one arrived from Jordan via the UAE and another from Indonesia via Singapore - both to Auckland. The third came from the Philippines via Singapore, and is isolating in Christchurch.

Another five cases recovered on Wednesday, bringing the number of active cases in New Zealand to 25. The total number of confirmed cases is 2273.

COVID-19 update on Australian cases

The Ministry of Health says 32 people in New Zealand have been advised to isolate at home until they receive a negative result from a day five COVID-19 test.

The three people who got their test back have all returned negative a result.

"Remaining passengers who weren’t at the locations of interest at the specified times should continue monitoring their health and if symptoms develop, call Healthline and get a test.

"The risk from this event continues to be assessed as low."

Meanwhile those who were in Perth between April 27 and May 1 are advised to continue checking the Western Australian Government website for updates.
