Two weeks is a long time when it comes to Covid.
There are 562 community cases in the current Delta outbreak -- with just 53 new cases reported yesterday.
That's 30 fewer than the day before.
Most of the country comes out of Level Four at midnight and Northland is likely to follow on Thursday night, while Auckland faces another two weeks under Level Four restrictions.
Otago University infectious diseases physician Kurt Krause says told Kate Hawkesby while yesterday's drop in case numbers is encouraging, only time will tell whether we have the outbreak under control.
"There's new variants brewing around the world, different things are happening. It really has been hard to settle down and be confident about what's going to happen from one week to the next."
