As the number of COVID-19 cases rises in New Zealand's current outbreak, worryingly, so do the hospitalisations.
So far, 511 cases have been reported in the current outbreak, 83 of which were announced on Sunday.
Of the 34 people in hospital at the moment, 30 are Samoan and two are Māori.
None of those hospitalised are fully vaccinated and just eight of the 34 have had one dose.
A higher number of women are in hospital - 21 women compared to 13 men.
And Delta is affecting younger people too. Seven of those in hospital are in their 30s, four in their 20s, and one is under the age of 20.
