New Zealand extends Auckland ‘lockdown’ for 12 days

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a 12-day extension of the country’s COVID-19 restrictions, after a cluster of cases grew to 29.

 

There are four “alert levels” in New Zealand, and Auckland has been on Level 3 since Wednesday.

 

The rest of the country is on Level 2, and Ardern said both would be extended.

 

New Zealand has had success containing coronavirus, and went 102 days without a community transmission.

 

The origin of the cluster in Auckland – New Zealand’s largest city with a population of 1.5 million – is still being investigated.
