New Zealand extends nationwide lockdown as Covid outbreak tops 100 cases

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has extended the nationwide lockdown until midnight Friday, after New Zealand recorded another 35 coronavirus cases, bringing the total number in its outbreak to 107.

The epicenter of the outbreak, Auckland, where 99 cases have been detected so far, will remain in lockdown until at least August 31. The rest of the country has seen only eight cases, so restrictions there will be reviewed later this week, Ardern announced.

“Six days into the outbreak, we are building a picture of Delta's spread,” she said.
