New Zealand Seeks Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Carter Genslak, News Editor

After weeks of lockdown, New Zealand has eliminated Covid-19. 

   New Zealand is twice as big as Michigan. They had almost five weeks of strict level four lockdown. Level four means that the lockdown is still in place, but has a few changes. The following are a few: curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., mandatory cloth masks, no concerts, no cinemas and no gatherings, no air travel/boat travel, and no alcohol.   

   On Tuesday, April 28, New Zealand moved to a less strict lockdown, sending 400,000 back to work! And with an increase of employment, 75% of New Zealand’s economy is now operating. The island country had a total of 1,472 confirmed cases and 19 deaths. After hearing this, hopefully the population can regain some hope, because there is, indeed, a light at the end of the tunnel!
