New Zealand confirms 1st community spread case of COVID-19 in months
New Zealand confirmed on Monday it was investigating one positive case of COVID-19 in the community that was first reported on Sunday, the first domestic case in months. The infection in a 56-year-old woman who returned to New Zealand on Dec. 30 was of a coronavirus variant first detected in South Africa, the COVID-19 response minister Chris Hipkins said during a news conference. There were no other community cases reported and authorities said the source of the infection was probably a fellow returnee at a quarantine facility.
