New Zealand Prime Minister Cinda Ardern on Saturday said that once again the lockdown is being imposed in the country’s largest city of Auckland. In view of the increasing cases of Coronavirus, a lockdown of seven days from Sunday will be imposed in Auckland. He told a news conference that apart from the lockdown in Auckland, the rest of New Zealand would be placed under Level 2 sanctions that limit public ceremonies.
Let us tell you that in mid-February, a three-day lockdown has already taken place in Auckland. About 2 million of its population had to stay indoors in a three-day lockdown. This happened because three people living in a family here had become positive from the UK variant. Now, once again, a week of lockdown is being imposed in view of increasing cases.
