Ardern under fire for slow border reopening


Jacinda Ardern’s government was accused of a “heartless” Covid border policy after New Zealand announced a slow easing of restrictio­ns that will keep families apart for Christmas.

Under the plans fully-vaccinated New Zealanders living in Australia will be allowed into the country without going through hotel quarantine from mid-january. It will be extended to citizens travelling from other nations on Feb 13. “It is cruel, it is callous, it is heartless,” said Chris Bishop, from the opposition National Party said.
