COVID-19: New Zealand extends lockdown to 27 August
The 3 day New Zealand lockdown in reaction to their most recent outbreak (remember they haven’t had a community transmission case for 6 months) has been extended, ending on Friday 27 August.
Today, there were an additional 41 cases of community transmission – so cases are on the rise which seems to be the universal story with the Delta strain.
I, unfortunately, doubt that the New Zealand lockdown will end on Friday 27 August – at least not for Auckland and the Counties Manukau which are currently the hub of the outbreak.
Our holiday in the North Island, delayed from mid-year is looking even shakier for December this year.
