COVID-19 re­turns

First News - - WORLD NEWS -

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful lock­down and more than 100 days with no lo­cal cases, a COVID-19 out­break has been de­tected. PM Jacinda Ardern has an­nounced a fur­ther lock­down af­fect­ing 1.7 mil­lion peo­ple. Some cases are con­nected to a ware­house in Auck­land, where sev­eral work­ers have tested pos­i­tive for the virus. It’s been sug­gested that the virus came in on the pack­ag­ing of frozen food shipped from abroad, or that bor­der con­trols haven’t been tight enough to keep the virus out.
