New Zealand enters lockdown over one Covid case – BBC News


New Zealand is going into a snap lockdown after a man tested positive for coronavirus – the first case in the country in six months.

Auckland, where the case was detected, will be in lockdown for a week, while the rest of the country will be in lockdown for three days.

Authorities say they are working on the assumption that the new case was the Delta variant.

“I want to assure New Zealand that we have planned for this eventuality. Going hard and early has worked for us before,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

  1. How far they going to lockdown they will develop natural immunity which can't be possible with vaccination alone….

  2. Same measure taken by China but BBC reports it differently using such words as Draconian, dictator, communist etc.

    Anyway, I fear Jacinda might soon be assassinated and replaced by a US puppet PM.

  3. And as at 3 September 2021, the lockdown has been pretty successful so far. Our daily COVID-19 rates seemed to have peaked and are declining. Only 32 new cases in the last 24 hours. The Government has distributed wage subsidies for people and businesses too.

  4. Is it true that Dr Francis Boyle said that SarsCovid2 is a tripartite chimera 1- Sar's virus weaponised given gain of function and recombined with the HIV virus genetically manufactured ?

  5. New Zealand was the last country in the world to receive the vaccine, so it stands to reason our vaccination rates are lower. We handled the first round of Covid better than the majority of countries, so it was only realistic that we stepped back and others got it first.
    As for all the morons responding to other comments, stating that Covid is fake, you're all incredibly ignorant and poorly educated.

  6. Why it’s there like so much people that aren’t from New Zealand saying it had got the worse government ever Even tho they were the first to get rid of the virus anyway they know what there doing

  7. Overlay the confirmed cases and lockdown dates with Australian cases since June. NZ is a really bad position I don't think the government fully realises this yet. Level 4 lockdown will stop spread but as soon as you go back down alert levels cases will spread like wildfire, all the lockdown buys is time at a lot of expense. Unfortunately with Delta and subsequent variants, full elimination is not possible any academic who believes this is deluded. Consider Australia. In early June 2 "delta' cases were recorded in Melbourne they left and went to NSW. Two and a half months later there are now 1050 cases per day. The pattern is that of an exponential function. Lockdown will never work longterm how it plays in the shorterm is almost irrelevant it just buys some time, so the next line of defense is vaccination and masks. In addition, Prof. Tim Spector of Zoe tracking app in UK stated after 4-5 months vaccine efficiency reduces to around 50%.

  8. We knew that if there was one case of delta detected here in NZ there would be hundreds of others, so it has proved. One weakness here is the slow vax rollout, this is ramping up now. Feel for Melbourne who have had 200 plus days of lockdown.

  9. American offensive biological weapons program coverup scientists recreated coronavirus Covid 19 to infect humans in a laboratory as a weapon to be used on enemies of the United States, and they began testing it on unsuspecting populations where they lost control of the experiment

  10. Total 🦬💩..its the double jabbed who are spreading through infecting those who remain un-vaccinated..Johnson & Johnson has been prevented from being able to administer the💉in America due to high case's of bloodclots & deaths by the CDC..Japan has also ceased the MODERNA 💉from being administered.. the LOCKDOWNS in New Zealand 🇳🇿 & in Australia are simply designed to control through draconian measures the uptake of the💉rollout..DO YOUR RESEARCH before making a decision to have any💉its all about FEAR..CONTROL & 💰🤑🤨

  11. Jacinda Arden is just amazing! Wish our government was as proactive and caring rather than allowing the countless deaths to continue.

  12. Considering both my neighbours had COVID, and two people living on my property had COVID, and many other people I know I find this a bit overkill.

  13. Kinda shows that no matter how strict the rules are, COVID will always be there. Unfortunately we will have to live with COVID.

  14. 😂 1x case 😂 in england theres so many people with covid; so many people have had it or they know someone who has. Major deniers 😂😂

  15. Attention Seeking BBC !! Jesus ! And slagging off our Glorious Prime Minister ! Not the BBC i grew up with in London … 1 person now standing at 150 plus due to instant Lockdown which WOULD have been 10s of thousands in a small population ! I look at back home in the UK and think WHY DON'T YOU SLAG OFF BORIS ? Who's a pretty cool guy !
