Health Officials Issue Advisory After Man Who Attended Auckland Tool Show Tests Positive For Coronavirus


New Zealand health officials have issued a warning to those who attended Tool‘s February 28th concert at the Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand after a concertgoer who attended has tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The attendee and his wife had been visiting Northern Italy prior to the concert. Both the man and his wife have since tested positive for the Coronavirus and remain in self-isolation with medical support.

The man was said to have been standing in the general admission area in the front left-hand quadrant of the audience. It is unclear if he was infectious at the time he attended the concert.

New Zealand health officials urge those who were in that area of the concert to remain vigilant of any potential symptoms, though they stated that the risk of anyone contracting it due to being in his general proximity is thought to be low.
