New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a nationwide lockdown after the country confirmed ONE coronavirus case. An unvaccinated 58-year-old man in the country’s largest city Auckland tested positive for the virus. It was the first locally transmitted Covid-19 case in the community since February. “We are one of the last countries in the world to have the Delta variant in our community,” Ardern said. “We’re in the position to learn from experience overseas, and what actions work, and what actions don’t work.” „We have seen what can happen elsewhere if we fail to get on top of it. We only get one chance,” she added. Prior to Tuesday’s announcement, life in the country had largely returned to normal.
The country has fully immunized less than 20% of its population. To have a look in the proximity, more than half of Australia’s population are in lockdown and the country’s most populous city Sydney has been in lockdown since June. To be right, those countries understand how Covid-19 can disturb the entire society. The measures to be taken in such circumstances are not political disputable and the population understand them. Right is just right and nothing more. This should be a model for the world in pandemic time, time and history will prove it !
