We have updated our method to estimate Rt to allow for differences between Rt for local cases and for imported cases. Imported cases were expected to generate fewer new cases since arriving persons undergo 14-day quarantine. Here, Rt measures the average number of secondary infections from persons who are infected on day t. There is a 7-day lag because very recent cases will still be in their incubation period and it is too soon to whether transmission might occur.

We have paused estimation of Rt again, given that no local infections have been reported in the past 10 days.
