NEW ZEALAND IMPLEMENTS LOCKDOWN EXTENSION AS VIRUS SPIKE

New Zealand health officials said Wednesday a COVID-19 cluster in Auckland had grown, raising the prospect a lockdown imposed on the country’s biggest city after the virus returned will be extended.

National health director-general Ashley Bloomfield said a high school student in Auckland had tested positive, taking the number of confirmed infections to five, with another four probable cases.

Health authorities rushed to implement a lockdown in the country’s largest city after testing revealed four family members had contracted the virus from an unknown source.

It ended New Zealand’s much-envied run of 102 days without community transmission and resulted in a three-day stay-at-home order in Auckland, which ends at midnight Friday.
