    A possible case of Covid-19 in Canterbury is being investigated

    A possible case of Covid-19 in Canterbury is being investigated


    The person is currently in managed isolation -- however it's unclear whether they came from overseas and went straight into isolation, or were in the community.

    A Ministry of Health spokesperson says it's standard to have cases under investigation at any one time -- and these aren't included in the country's overall number of cases.

    It comes as two deaths related to the virus were reported in as many days, both in Auckland.

    The first was a man in his 50's, the youngest to die in our country and the second was former Cook Islands Prime Minister Joseph Williams.
