New Zealand’s team of 5 million have defeated the COVID-19 virus.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced that New Zealand has no cases of Covid-19. As a result of this New Zealand moved to Level 1 from midnight on Monday.

Ardern said that said the country was ready.

It has been 40 days since the last recorded case of community transmission, 26 days since entering alert level 2, 17 days since a new case, and less than 24 hours since having.

The new level will mean there will be no limits on gathering numbers, however, the border restrictions will remain – only New Zealand citizens or permanent residents are allowed in, and all who enter must stay in managed isolation for a fortnight.

She warned however that there was still a risk of further infection of Covid-19, and that it would continue to be seen overseas.

She asked all New Zealanders to keep a record of where they had been during level 1, either by using the tracing app or keeping their own record.
