What. The. F***.
New Zealand is shutting down the ENTIRE nation over one COVID-19 case?

“Stay local. Do not congregate, don’t talk to your neighbors,” advised Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern:

The lockdown will reportedly last for seven days in the area where this one guy lived, three days for the entire nation:
New Zealand has put the entire nation into a strict lockdown for at least three days after finding a single case of coronavirus infection. Auckland, where the infected man lives, and Coromandel, where he visited, will be in lockdown for seven days. https://t.co/qVLAFcBf4A

At what point does this nonsense end?
New Zealand has just been plunged into a nationwide lockdown with all vaccinations cancelled because of one Covid case.
That’s right, ONE case of a virus we all know we have to learn to live with.
Jacinda Ardern’s Zero Covid fantasy is nothing short of a never ending nightmare.
