New Zealand government hits out at Boris Johnson’s ‘live with Covid’ policy
The National says NEW Zealand’s government is not “willing to accept” an England-style strategy of “living with” coronavirus, the country’s Covid-19 response minister has said.
Speaking at a press conference alongside prime minister Jacinda Ardern, Chris Hipkins said the level of deaths expected in England as Boris Johnson lifts the majority of restrictions would be “unacceptable”.
The pair were asked about Johnson’s scrapping of masks and social distancing from July 19, and insistence that “we must reconcile ourselves, sadly, to more deaths from Covid”.
