Covid 19 coronavirus: Two Auckland MIQ guests transferred to hospital with Covid symptoms

Two people in managed isolation in Auckland have been transferred to hospital.

It is understood the pair have been removed from an MIQ hotel to Middlemore Hospital in South Auckland, Newshub is reporting.

At least one of the people was said to be showing acute Covid-19 symptoms and was taken from the Jet Park quarantine facility to Middlemore Hospital yesterday afternoon.

One of the patients is being treated in a negative pressure isolation room in a dedicated Covid-19 space.

Both recent arrivals are reportedly in a stable condition.

Middlemore Hospital doctors are currently treating a Covid patient from Fiji who arrived in the country just over a week ago.

The patient, a UN worker in her 60s, is currently in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Within 24 hours of the patient’s arrival, a health worker treating the woman was quarantined after a PPE breach which officials have refused to give details about.

The worker was moved into a quarantine facility after they were unable to easily self-isolate at home.
