New Zealand has marked 100 days without a recorded case of coronavirus in the community, but health officials have said that they can’t take anything for granted.
The country still has a total of 23 active cases, but all were discovered at the border entrance and are in managed isolation centres.
“Achieving 100 days without community transmission is a significant milestone, however, as we all know, we can’t afford to be complacent,” New Zealand’s director-general of health Ashley Bloomfield said, reports the BBC.
“We have seen overseas how quickly the virus can re-emerge and spread in places where it was previously under control, and we need to be prepared to quickly stamp out any future cases in New Zealand.”
