100 days without Covid-19: How New Zealand got rid of a virus that keeps spreading across the world

On Sunday, New Zealand will mark 100 days without community transmission of Covid-19.

From the first known case imported into New Zealand on February 26 to the last case of community transmission detected on May 1, elimination took 65 days.

New Zealand relied on three types of measures to get rid of the virus:

1. Ongoing border controls to stop Covid-19 from entering the country
2. A lockdown and physical distancing to stop community transmission
3. Case-based controls using testing, contact tracing and quarantine.

Collectively, these measures have achieved low case numbers and deaths compared with high-income countries in Europe and North America that pursued a suppression strategy.

*We are now being told to get masks & practice putting them on even tho the only cases are NZers returning home & in quarantine for 14 days with tests.*
