WELLINGTON, Sept 23 (Reuters) - The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) held its official cash rate at 0.25% in a widely expected decision on Wednesday, as data suggested the economic hit from the coronavirus was less severe than initially feared.

Economists in a Reuters poll had unanimously expected the RBNZ to hold rates.

The bank also retained its large scale asset purchase (LSAP) programme at as much as NZ$100 billion ($66.32 billion). ($1 = 1.5078 New Zealand dollars) (Reporting by Praveen Menon; Editing by Sam Holmes)
