New Zealand authorities announced this Sunday that the country’s most populous city, Auckland, will cease to be subject to strict detention as of Wednesday after considering that it will be coronavirus-free after ten days of no community transmission.
On its balance sheet this Sunday, the New Zealand Ministry of Health reported only one case, namely that of a person who arrived from Hong Kong on October 1 and who has already been moved and isolated to one of the Auckland quarantine centers, lifted by the government.
To date, New Zealand has a total of 1,499 cases and 25 deaths. Auckland, which has been subject to restrictions since August 12, has 226 cases unlike the rest of the territory, but only one remains active.
Health officials have reported that an estimated 40 active cases are estimated at the national level, 34 of which are overseas, but none of them required approval.
