New Zealand confirms first case of coronavirus

New Zealand confirmed its first case of the new coronavirus on Friday (February 28) in someone who returned from Iran, but said the chances of a community outbreak remains low.

The patient — in their 60s — tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the day. The person is being treated in Auckland City Hospital and their condition is improving, New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern said.

Public health officials have begun tracing the patient’s contact history and will test the individual’s family members for the virus.

The person travelled on an Emirates Airline flight that originated in Tehran, stopped in Bali, Indonesia, and ended in Auckland on Feb 26.
