As of Monday, 15, only essential services should operate in the city of Auckland, the largest municipality in the country of Oceania
After the discovery of three local cases of Covid-19, the prime minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, announced on Sunday, 14, a lockdown in the city of Auckland, the largest municipality in the country. For at least three days, all services considered non-essential, including schools, will not work. In all, 1.7 million people will only be able to leave home to shop and go to the doctor. The extreme measures adopted by New Zealand to contain the pandemic are said to be responsible for the low transmissibility of the disease in the country of 4.8 million people. From the beginning of the pandemic to the present, 2,300 cases of contamination and 25 deaths have been recorded.
