NEW ZEALAND ENDS ALL COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS OUTSIDE AUCKLAND

By Xai Reyes

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday (Sep 21) lifted all COVID-19 restrictions across the country, except in second-wave hotspot Auckland, as the number of new infections slowed to a trickle.

Arden said some restrictions were also eased in Auckland to allow gatherings of up to 100 people, but the country’s biggest city needed more time before all curbs could be lifted.

New Zealand, a nation of 5 million, appeared to have halted community transmission of COVID-19 earlier this year, but a fresh outbreak in Auckland in August prompted the government to place the city back in lockdown.

The country recorded no new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, keeping its total number of confirmed cases at 1,464, with 25 deaths, far below many other countries.
