New Zealand extends lockdown for Auckland amid COVID-19 outbreak

Auckland: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Friday extended a lockdown for the country’s largest city after an outbreak of COVID-19.

Earlier this week, the government placed Auckland under its second-highest Alert Level 3 lockdown through Friday. Ardern extended the measures for another 12 days.

“Together, we have got rid of COVID before,” she said during an evening news conference.

“We have kept it out for 102 days, longer than any other country. We have been world-leading in our COVID response, with the result that many lives were saved and our economy was getting going faster than almost anywhere else. We can do all of that again.”
