  • Against Delta, New Zealand questions its ‘zero-Covid’ strategy

New Zealand On Sunday, it acknowledged that its “zero-Covid” strategy is threatened by the spread of the coronavirus epidemic due to the delta variable. “(Delta) is unlike anything we have known since the beginning of the pandemic,” the minister responsible for combating Covid-19, Chris Hepkins, said on TVNZ. “It changes everything, and it means that all of our current actions seem less appropriate and raises questions about the future of our long-term strategy,” said Chris Hepkins.

It reported 21 new cases linked to the outbreak that emerged last week in Auckland. The first locally sourced contamination in six months resulted in the disease being contained at the national level. Chris Hepkins said that this outbreak was much more difficult to contain than the previous ones because the delta variant is significantly more contagious. “Its high prevalence and rapid spread are two things that, although we have taken the best precautions in the world, have put a strain on our system,” he said.
