Computer glitch double trouble for COVID case count

A computer glitch that saw the nation’s cases of COVID-19 ‘double counted’ yesterday resulted in today’s case numbers being incorrectly reported as 13,344, the Ministry of Health said today.

It says the correct figure for today is 9,318 – which is around the same level as case numbers reported for the past three days.

A corrected statement is being published on the Ministry website and updated case figures for individual districts are also being published here:

“The number of imported cases – people who have recently travelled overseas – was also affected by the same error, and the the correct figure is 275, not the 390 incorrectly published earlier today,” the Ministry said in a statement.

“The computer glitch has now been corrected.”
