Nueva Zelanda vuelve a extender el confinamiento de todo el país

New Zealand extends nationwide lockout again | Community

New Zealand announced on Monday that the nationwide lockout would be extended until next Friday, after authorities registered a total of 107 Govt-19 cases since last week.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinta Artern announced the move at a press conference after a meeting with her cabinet and pledged “this is the safest option for all of us at the moment.”

After reporting the first local outbreak of Govt-19 in New Zealand in six months, Order ordered the closure of the Auckland and Coromandel Peninsulas last Tuesday for seven days and the rest of the country for three days.

New Zealand authorities last Friday extended the jail term until August 24.

As the government agreed today, the country will be under control until midnight on August 27 and the most affected city of Auckland will do so until August 31.

Authorities today registered 34 new local infections, representing a total of 107 cases since last Tuesday.

The government had earlier announced that the New Zealand Parliament would suspend its proceedings for the entire week in response to the Kovit-19 eruption.

New Zealand, one of the developed countries with the slowest vaccination rate, is globally recognized for its effective management of infection with early and rapid locks.

This weekend, Chris Hipkins, the minister in charge of the administration of Covit-19, acknowledged, however, that the Delta variant “significantly changes the rules of the game” and that current measures appear to be “less adequate”.

New Zealand officials stepped up their vaccination campaign last week, which began with the most exposed workers last February, but was not extended to the general public until the end of July.

The executive wants to vaccinate targeted people by the end of the year to reopen its borders, which closed in March 2020, in the first quarter of 2021.

About 3,000 Govt-19 cases have accumulated in New Zealand since the outbreak, including 26 deaths.
