New Zealand to ease lockdown restrictions from next week


Lockdown measures already in place in New Zealand will end in one week.

Making the announcement, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the country will then move to a lower level of restrictions.

"New Zealand will move out of Alert Level 4 lockdown at 11:59 pm on Monday, April 27, one week from today," she said in a news conference.

"We will then hold in Alert Level 3 for two weeks, before reviewing how we are tracking again, and making further decisions at Cabinet on the 11th of May."
