New Zealand entered a national lockdown on August 18, 2021, after a man in Auckland tested positive for Covid-19. It was the country’s first new case in six months. Schools, offices and all businesses other than essential services are shut across the country for an initial period of three days, while Auckland itself will remain in lockdown for a week. The drastic measure underscores New Zealand’s pandemic response, which unlike other nations aims to eliminate rather than suppress the spread of the virus.
