The Spinoff Covid tracker: the live graphs that tell the story of delta in Aotearoa

Everything you need to know about how the Covid-19 pandemic is tracking in New Zealand, through regularly updated data visualisations.

The Spinoff Covid tracker brings together all the relevant Covid data – cases, tests, vaccination and mobility – in one place.

The aim of this page is to show the numbers in the context of the larger picture. We will continuously update and improve it based on feedback.

The reporting times differ for some of the data sets. We will update them as soon as the data is public.

The mobility data we use comes from Google community mobility reports. It is only indicative, but it provides a view into the effectiveness of lockdowns and we will continue to update the data as we shift down levels.

Along with showing the topline numbers, our vaccination graphs are designed to highlight the challenges that become visible when we look beyond the headline “90% vaccinated” target. Scroll down towards the end of this page to view vaccination data broken down by ethnicity and age, at a national and DHB level.

Update (19th Oct): As the outbreak continues, different data points become pertinent. We are removing the comparisons with the New South Wales outbreak and replacing these with case demographic data for the local outbreak – by age and ethnicity. In addition, the ‘cases infectious in community’ chart is now replaced by the ‘Unlinked cases’ chart.

In addition, we are visualising vaccination rates by suburb on a map. Click here to see the latest maps, updated every Wednesday afternoon.
