New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has imposed another lockdown on the city of Auckland and placed the remainder of the country under Level-2 restrictions, after another new case of Covid-19 was confirmed.

A seven-day lockdown will begin in Auckland from 6am local time on Sunday, while the rest of New Zealand will be placed into Level-2 restrictions, which limit public gatherings, Ardern said on Saturday, following a community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 resulting in a Covid-19 case of unknown origin.
