Total number of current Active COVID-19 cases in NZ hospitals involving foreign crew off commercial shipping vessels

Donna McMillan made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Donna McMillan to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Donna McMillan

Dear Ministry of Health,

1. I would like to request the total number Active Covid-19 cases involving foreign citizens currently in DHBs or private hospitals.
Are any of the active cases foreign crew off commercial ships docked in NZ Ports? If so what is their country of origin or last country before return.
If there are active cases in NZ hospitals, why are these cases not reflected in the number of cases in hospital - currently zero on the Ministry website. Or are these cases reflected elsewhere? If so please direct me to the site.
What is the current procedure for crew on foreign vessels in NZ waters that dock here? Are they tested, and if so how many have tested positive. Who pays for their medical care?
2. Have any Air NZ pilots of staff tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two months.

Many thanks
Yours faithfully,

D. McMillan
