New Zealand’s first Omicron community case is a DJ Dimension that tops the list

The top-ranked international DJ, who tested positive for the Omicron variant of Covid-19 while in the Auckland community, says: “I can not put into words how extremely sad I am to anyone who wants to be affected “.

Dimension, aka Robert Etheridge, a British electronic artist, flew to New Zealand on December 16, ending seven days in hotel quarantine, followed by three days of home isolation.

The musician returned three negative tests before testing positive on December 27 – the result of a test taken on day nine, which fell on December 25.

On December 26 and 27, he visited several places in Auckland, including the central nightclub Impala.

Late Wednesday night, after Stuff revealed that he had tested positive for the Omicron variant, a “broken” Etheridge posted on his Instagram that he had followed government rules and shown no symptoms prior to “unexpectedly” being tested positive eleven days after arrival.

“I can not put into words how extremely sorry I am for everyone who will be affected. Never in a million years did I think something like this would be a reality in a country that I love so much, and which has always made me feel so welcome, “said his post.

Etheridge was to star in the Rhythm & Alps music festival near Wanaka, but was pulled from the line-up along with another DJ, known as Friction, on Wednesday night “due to the ongoing influences of Covid-19 “.

Friction is a close contact and is insulating.
