Share This:

The “Fifth Wave” of Covid in New Zealand began “officially” on 13 November, 2023. We are in Week 13 now. with the data for Weeks 1-12 available, except technically Week 8 and 9, as they came together because Week 8’s reporting Monday was a New Year’s Public Holiday.

The data shows that those who have taken zero doses of the Covid-19 Vaccine in New Zealand report a positive case of Covid at the lowest of all rates. The next are the 1-dose cohort, then 2-dose (“Fully-Vaccinated”), then, with the most by far, well outstripping their size of the population, the Boosted come out on top.

Per-100,000 people, the Boosted cohort reported a positive case of Covid-19 around 10.78x that of the Unvaccinated cohort.
