Tool Fans Warned After Man With Coronavirus Attended Concert
Fans of post-metal rock band Tool have been encouraged to check for coronavirus symptoms after a man with the disease went to their concert last week.
New Zealand's fourth positive test for COVID-19 was confirmed on Thursday.
The fourth case was the partner of a woman who recently returned from northern Italy with the virus.
They are both self-isolating in Auckland, leaving health officials to trace their movements prior to the positive tests.
The 30-something man attended Tool's concert at Spark Arena, Auckland on Friday 28 February, when he may have been infectious.
The warning does not affect fans who went to the band's Australian concerts last month.
Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said fans in the front left quadrant of the general admission standing area should check for symptoms, and contact Healthline's dedicated COVID-19 number if they are present.
Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Bloomfield says the Tool concertgoers are at low risk.
The two other New Zealanders with the virus both have ties to another coronavirus hotspot, Iran.
One had recently travelled to the region. The other had family who did so.
No New Zealanders have died from the disease.
