New Zealand has zero COVID-19 patients in the hospital and has not registered a new case for 6 days, the health ministry said today.
The last hospital patient was discharged in Auckland overnight in the latest mark of victory for New Zealand’s internationally-praised response to the pandemic.
New Zealand only confirmed its first case on February 26, but had shut its borders by March 19 and started implementing a complete lockdown on March 26.
The nation’s success means the lockdown could be practically lifted within weeks, with gatherings of up to 100 already allowed and plans being made to resume travel to Australia.
