COVID-19: New Zealand at level 4 Lockdown until Tuesday 31 August
New Zealand will remain at Alert Level 4 until 11:59 pm on Tuesday 31 August.
Reporting up until 9 am on 27 August, New Zealand had 70 new cases bringing their active total to 384.
Most cases have arisen in Auckland and Northland regions which will probably stay at Alert Level 4 after the end of August. You’ll need to wait until Monday 30 August when this will next be reviewed.
Although these numbers are extremely low when compared to Australia, or almost anywhere else in the world, the have come as a shock to New Zealanders, which has been almost COVID-19 free for most of the pandemic. NZ did move hard and fast at the beginning of this current outbreak, so lets hope they manage to contain it.
