As of this morning there had been 676 cases in the Cooks, with 206 having recovered and 470 still active.
The vast majority of these cases have been on Rarotonga, with several on Aitutaki.
The Prime Minister, Mark Brown, says while none of the Covid-19 victims in the country have needed hospital treatment, one case does have moderate symptoms.
He said this person is being supported by Te Marae Ora and other government agencies.
Mr Brown also said there are 14 active cases aged 70 or over and these people are also being closely monitored.
The prime minister said "our elderly, our unvaccinated and those with non-communicable diseases are also more vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus, and so it is especially important that anyone who falls into one of these categories continues to observe all of the relevant health and safety precautions as closely as possible."
