New Zealand’s COVID-19 lockdown extended as outbreak tops 100 cases

Arab News says Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday extended New Zealand’s strict nationwide COVID-19 lockdown saying the current outbreak of the Delta variant of the coronavirus had not yet peaked.

The level 4 national lockdown was extended by three days until midnight on Aug. 27 while Auckland, the epicenter of the outbreak, will have restrictions in place at least until Aug. 31.

“The safest option for all of us right now is to hold the course for longer,” Ardern said at a news conference. “If the world has taught us anything it is to be cautious with this variant of COVID-19,” she added.
