Jacinda Ardern stays calm as earthquake rattles New Zealand during press conference

The Independent says a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck New Zealand on Thursday, sending shockwaves that were felt across the country – including by Jacinda Ardern, who was in the middle of a press conference.

The prime minister, who was speaking about the country’s new traffic light Covid framework in Wellington, was being asked a question by a reporter when the earthquake hit just before 11am.

Keeping her cool, she waited for the tremors to subside before turning back to the reporter and asking for the question to be repeated because of the “slight distraction”.
