Auckland reopens and abandons "zero Covid

" policy

Acknowledging the impossibility of pursuing a "zero Covid" policy, New Zealand will end the three-and-a-half-month lockdown in the country's largest city, Auckland, by adopting a new strategy to combat the coronavirus. The news was made known by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who explained that starting from 11:59 pm on 2 December, New Zealand will be less severe in its attempt to contain the Delta variant, renouncing the claim to eliminate it entirely.

"The hard truth - said Arden - is that the Delta variant is here and will not go away. Even if no country has been able to eliminate it completely, New Zealand is still in a better position than most other nations to deal with it. ". So far the Arden-led government has aimed at the complete eradication of the disease, but the goal has in fact proved unrealistic and extremely penalizing for the quality of life (and for the economy) of the population. After all, the disease has killed only 40 people out of a population of five million, and public pressure has increased to end the blockade imposed on Auckland since the Delta variant was detected in this city in August.
