Covid-19 Update: No new cases overnight

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield says there have been no new coronavirus cases overnight.

Bloomfield said he was looking for a run of days of zero community cases to inform a decision on moving alert levels.

Auckland is now in its third day of alert level 3 lockdown.

A 21-year-old (Case M) and his mother (Case N) tested positive for the virus during the weekend, prompting the snap lockdown.

Initially it was unclear how Case M caught the virus.

But on Monday Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced undisclosed contact between Case M's mother and another mum involved in Auckland's February cluster.

They had gone for a walk during the region’s level 3 lockdown earlier this month.

Bloomfield said authorities "couldn't take any chances" with alert levels given there were "quite a few exposure events" connected to Case M.

He said there had been high infection rates in the families connected to the cluster and some casual exposure.

“We want to make sure there is not more of those, and we stamp it out.”

Bloomfield said Auckland was only a few days in from when Case M was most infectious, so people would need to “wait and see” if there was any more cases linked to him.

Although he suspected Case M “was not having a good time of it” in terms of backlash over breaching the rules, he said a “punitive approach” could be “counter-productive”.

“We can’t afford to give this virus an inch.”

Auckland trees an 'eyesore' after being cut in deep V shapes to avoid power lines

Good morning Auckland neighbours,

Auckland residents are up in arms after a row of trees was turned into an “eyesore” in a bid to protect some power lines.

Residents of Alford St, in the central Auckland suburb of Waterview, woke up last week to find the trees on their berms cut into deep V shapes.

John Jones, who lives opposite one of the trees, said they were “quite an eyesore”.

Auckland Council’s regional arborists and ecological manager David Stejskal said the trees were pruned by contractors Treescape as part of routine maintenance of trees growing under power lines.

The overzealous pruning was brought to the council’s attention by a local board member.

Officials have since visited the site and spoken to the contractor about the unacceptable nature of the pruning, Stejskal said.

“The power lines clearance programme needs to strike a balance between the regulatory clearance required to protect power lines and maintaining the viability of the tree,” he said.

Our contractors agree to clear trees to regulatory and contract specifications and best practice guidelines which in this case were not carried out.

“We are currently speaking to Treescape about what needs to be done to remedy the situation.”

Treescape confirmed it is working with the council to remedy the situation.

“We understand the concerns of the residents, and we’re working together to resolve the issue,” a spokesperson said.

“That’s all we can say at this stage.”

What do you think of the way the trees have been cut?

Please visit our website www.coeliac.org.nz... to find out more about Coeliac Disease.

People of all ages can have coeliac disease, and the importance of understanding the disease and how to manage a gluten free diet is particularly important for their wellbeing.

International research indicates there could be up to 100,000 people in our NZ team of 5 million with coeliac disease and of those 30,000 are likely to be children under the age of 18. However, a large proportion of those are unaware they have the condition.

This year’s theme is ‘The Great Plant Swap’ - as an easy way for our neighbourhoods to grow stronger together.

Auckland houses are less affordable than those in all but three other cities from eight countries surveyed for the 2021 Demographia international housing affordability report.

It’s now more affordable to buy a house in San Francisco or London than in Auckland. A new report has ranked the Super City as the fourth least affordable housing market in the world.

The 2021 annual Demographia international housing affordability report, which is a scaled down version of previous years’ reports, looks at housing affordability in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, UK and the US.

It ranks 92 major housing markets – with populations of more than one million – in eight countries based on the median multiple, which measures median house price divided by gross median household income.

According to the report, Auckland now has a “median multiple” of 10.0. That’s up from 8.6 last year when it was the equal sixth most unaffordable market with Toronto, and from 6.4 in 2010, just a decade ago.

Regions with house prices more than three times the median regional income are considered unaffordable, so Auckland’s median multiple makes it severely unaffordable.
