Coronavirus: New Zealand’s largest city goes back into lockdown

Exactly one year after New Zealand recorded its first coronavirus case, the country’s largest city of Auckland woke on Sunday to the second lockdown in a month, as authorities try to rein in a cluster of the more contagious U.K. variant.

The seven-day lockdown, announced late Saturday by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, was prompted by the case of a person who had been infectious for a week but not in isolation. The move follows a three-day stay-at-home order in mid-February after the U.K. COVID-19 variant emerged in New Zealand. About 14 cases are linked to the cluster.

The new lockdown, part of Level 3 restrictions, lets people leave home only for essential shopping and work, while public venues will stay shut.

Restrictions elsewhere in New Zealand are to be tightened to Level 2, setting limits on public gatherings.
