1 million workers in New Zealand back to work after winning battle vs. Covid-19


- Advertisment -

The New Zealand government is seeing success in its fight against the deadly Covid-19 after imposing tough lockdown restrictions on commercial centres as well as a number of schools.

The restrictions in the country is set to ease on Monday night.

Reported by UK’s The Guardian, the transmission rate in the country is now under 0.4 compared to the average overseas transmission rate of 2.5.

As the battle continues, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that they have avoided the worst in the pandemic.

“There is no widespread undetected community transmission in New Zealand. We have won the battle. But we must remain vigilant if we are to keep it that way,” she said.

On Tuesday, one million Kiwis are expected to go back to their normal lives at work.
