Niue facing Covid community transmission for first time, Govt confirms

The Niue government has confirmed the country is experiencing Covid-19 community transmission for the first time since the virus was recorded at the border in March this year.

"We don't have additional resources to be finding sources of infection, previously we haven't done that before.

"This is the first time we have had community transmission in Niue," Acting Secretary of Government, Gaylene Tasmania, said.

Out of the seven cases recorded in the reporting period to November 28 local time, four were listed as Covid-19 community transmission.

On November 29, 12 new cases were recorded taking the total number of active cases to 33 and the total number of cases since Covid-19 arrived at the border in March 2022 to 136.

Community transmission means a case has not been linked to any other infections, Tasmania said.
