New Zealand COVID-19 Free Again for 100 Days

The world is looking to inspiration to the nation on how to handle the pandemic.


Two months ago, New Zealand had announced that it was COVID-19 free and had lifted all restrictions. That success soon came to a screeching halt when two new cases had been reported.

Now, it seems the country is back on track reporting it has been COVID-19 free for 100 days on Sunday, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. It was reported that life has returned to normal for the 5 million citizens of the nation.

New Zealand got the virus under control by imposing some very strict measures in late March when only about 100 people had contracted the virus. The measures worked and for the past three months, the only new cases have been the travelers returning from abroad. These new cases have also been kept under control by being quarantined upon their return.
