A top health expert doesn't think any region can change colours in the Traffic Light System yet.

There were 103 community cases across the country today, up from 63 yesterday.

It comes ahead of the Government meeting to review New Zealand's traffic light settings tomorrow.

The decision will be based on factors including vaccination rates and case numbers.

Professor of Epidemiology at Auckland University Rod Jackson told The Weekend Collective it's too early to move.

ā€œIā€™d say Auckland needs another week, we need to see what happened on Freedom Friday. The rest of the Red areas, they got to get up to 90 per cent vaccination.ā€
