SYDNEY, Oct 1 — New Zealand Prime Minister Chris Hipkins has tested positive for Covid-19 and will work remotely while isolating, his office said today, two weeks out from a general election.
Hipkins has cold and flu symptoms that began yesterday and would isolate for five days or until he returned a negative test, the prime minister’s office said in a statement.
“He will continue with engagements he can undertake via Zoom,” the statement said.
The positive test will keep Hipkins temporarily on the campaign sidelines ahead of the October 14 general election, as his struggling incumbent Labour party seeks to win another term in office.
Hipkins today was due attend a Samoan church service in Auckland, but a spokesperon said Deputy Prime Minister Carmel Sepuloni would attend in his place.
The prime minister’s office said further updates on his schedule “will be provided in due course”.
The government lifted all remaining Covid-19 requirements in August, but health authorities still recommend that people stay home for five days if feeling unwell or if they have tested positive to Covid-19. — Reuters
