Wellington.— I do not believe Must be good at politics, But as far as infection is concerned, New Zealand Kovit-19 was one of the countries with the lowest rates of infections and deaths and one of the most acclaimed leaders in the world for managing the health crisis. After several months without registration of the virus in the country, the Prime Minister Jacinta Artern announced the new restrictions following the registration of nine victims With omigron variant. She herself enjoys these new activities: He had to put the marriage on hold.
“Our plan to manage Omigron cases in the first phase is similar to Delta We will quickly test, isolate contact clues and cases and contacts The expansion must stop, ”the president told reporters in Wellington.
Nine cases registered over the weekend – adding a total of 15,104 infections and 52 deaths since March 2020 – forced the PM to be installed. Very high level of controls In the country.
The victim’s family from the Nelson-Marlborough area attended a wedding and other events while staying in Auckland, where they interacted with “more than 100 people,” according to estimates, Artern said. “That is, Omigran is already in circulation in Auckland and the Nelson-Marlborough region, otherwise it would not be anywhere else,” he added.
From today it will be limited Attendance at events for a maximum of 100 vaccinated individuals And Will reintroduce the use of cinstraps on campus and on public transportation. “The red layer is not a lock,” Artern insisted Businesses can be open And people can still see family and friends as well To move freely across the country.
But despite that, Their wedding – scheduled for next weekend – was canceled.
“I associate with many New Zealanders who have had a similar experience as a result of an epidemic. To all who find themselves in that situation: I’m so sorry. ” The 41-year-old president said.
New Zealand is one of the few countries where there is no eruption of the Omigron variant, however Artern admitted last week that an explosion was inevitable, Because it is the most contagious variant. The new measures will take effect from midnight this Sunday according to local time.
Around 93% in New Zealand His vaccination was completed 12 years ago, And 52% received a booster dose. The country has started vaccinating children between the ages of 5 and 11.
The country was able to control the expansion of the delta variation An average of 20 cases per day. But he has seen an increase in the number of people who come to the country and go for forced isolation because they are suffering from Omigran disease.
This made it difficult for the isolated organization and while deciding what to do about reopening the borders, provoked the government to restrict access to returning citizens, much to the chagrin of many who wished to return to New Zealand.
