A New Zealand coffee shop apologized for not receiving the country's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her husband, Clay Gayford, due to the fact that the number of customers has reached the level allowed by the social spacing rules imposed to tackle the Coronavirus pandemic.
New Zealand media reported that Ardern and Gayford went to the café for breakfast on Saturday in the capital Wellington, but at first they were told that he was filled with the limit of customers, but a cafe employee joined them a few minutes later when they left a table and we were able to return.
And the rules of social separation in New Zealand impose that the number of visitors to one cafe does not exceed a hundred people at most, and that they leave at least one meter between the two seated.
Gayford blamed himself and said on Twitter, "I have to take responsibility for that, so I didn't arrange for it and book anywhere ... It was so nice of them that they followed us when I left a table. Excellent service."
The media office of the Prime Minister said that waiting at a cafe is an expected issue due to Corona's restrictions, and state television quoted the information office of Jacinda Ardern as saying, "The prime minister says she is waiting as everyone does."
The New Zealand government has eased many restrictions since last Thursday and reopened cafes, cinemas and shopping malls, two months after strict restrictions were applied to curb the emerging disease infection.
The country was able to contain the Corona pandemic before it depleted the country's health system, and data from the Ministry of Health showed that the country had registered 1149 confirmed cases of the virus and 21 deaths today.
