New Zealand reports resurgence of coronavirus cases
New Zealand was enjoying a corona-free three months. There were no restrictions of social distancing and gatherings with people participating in sports and cultural events freely. However, suddenly this week there has been a spurt in cases and the island has gone back to the days of social and economic restrictions.

WELLINGTON, Aug 14: New Zealand, an island country in the south-western Pacific Ocean which has been claiming zero cases of coronavirus for long when other countries were reporting infections in millions, is now seeing an eruption of fresh cases.

There were 13 new coronavirus cases in the community on Thursday in a new worrying outbreak of the epidemic. Health Director-General Ashley Bloomfield said the cases will increase.

There was report of a case from an overseas arrival on Thursday, taking the total to 36 active cases. Cases being confirmed are quarantined.

For 102 days there was no case, till this week when four cases were detected in an Auckland household.

New Zealand is now on a war footing to avert the crisis being faced by Australia, Japan and Vietnam, which are witnessing a resurgence.

Social distancing and restrictions on gatherings have been reimposed in the country.

“I know this disruption to businesses is putting extraordinary pressure on you, but the best long-term economic response is for us to get this immediate response right,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Thursday.

While Ardern said it was heartening that so far the outbreak was restricted to one cluster, she warned New Zealanders that the numbers would worsen.

It is suspected that the outbreak may have originated at a cold storage firm where one of the infected people worked.

New Zealand has a population of 5 million. It had closed its borders on March 19. At that time there had been 23 cases of corona positive entries at the border but they were all kept at bay in isolation. Health officials said there is no room for complacency.

The WHO had hailed the country's efforts as exemplary in the fight against coronavirus.

The first case occurred in February and till May 1, 1,219 cases were recorded.

During the interval, there were no restrictions of social distancing and gatherings with people participating in sports and cultural events freely. However, all arrivals were mandated to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
