New Zealand not willing to risk UK-style ‘live with Covid’ policy, says Jacinda Ardern
The Guardian says New Zealand has dismissed suggestions it should follow in Britain’s footsteps to “live with” Covid-19, saying the level of death proposed by Boris Johnson would be “unacceptable”.
If cases in Britain explode as a result of the lifted regulations, New Zealand may also consider putting the country on a no-fly list.
On Monday, Johnson announced plans to scrap regulations including on face masks and social distancing by 19 July, saying that Britain must “learn to live with” the virus. He said Covid cases would likely reach 50,000 a day within a fortnight, and “we must reconcile ourselves, sadly, to more deaths from Covid”.
