New Zealand has put its largest city back into lockdown after recording four new Covid-19 cases, ending a one hundred and two-day streak without a local infection.
A three-day lockdown has swiftly been imposed in Auckland after the cases were confirmed.
The four new cases are all members of a single family and none has travelled recently.
The restrictions will come into effect from today as authorities scramble to trace contacts of the family.
Auckland residents have been asked to stay at home, as large gatherings has been banned, Non-essential businesses will be shut, and some social-distancing restrictions will be reintroduced in the rest of the country.
