Prime Minister of the Capital Territory Andrew Bar He cautioned that the case is under investigation given that the source of the infection is currently unknown and added: “This is the most serious public health risk we have faced in the territory this year. Indeed, since the beginning of the epidemic. That is why we are going to have a strict lockdown.”
Advertisements call for the area to be restricted for three days from August 17 at night, while Auckland and the neighboring Coromandel region will be restricted for a week.
The overseas archipelago of New Zealand has been hailed for its effective management of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has so far caused just 26 deaths in a population of 5 million.
No national confiscation has been imposed in over a year, and life has resumed almost normally. However, the vaccination campaign allowed only 20% of the population to be fully vaccinated.
In the face of the epidemic and looking to the future, New Zealand will keep its borders closed until next year, and plans in early 2022 to accept vaccinated travelers from low-risk countries without quarantine. “We are not in a position to fully reopen our doors yet,” Ardern declared, “when we do move we will be careful, because we want to do so with confidence and certainty.”
