NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 3/04/2017

A woman from the Mt Roskill Samoan Assembly of God Church has died after contracting typhoid.

Auckland Regional Public Health Service clinical director Dr Julia Peters says the person was hospitalised with serious health issues and the typhoid infection was a complicating factor.

The woman died in hospital on Tuesday morning.

Ten other confirmed cases of typhoid, many from the Assembly of God church group, are still being treated in hospital.

All the members lived in locations across central and south Auckland.
