Latest Update on Covid-19

Coronavirus: PM Jacinda Ardern outlines NZ's new alert system

Key points:

• Four-stage alert system for Covid-19 announced

• New Zealand moved up to Covid-19 alert level 2 – reduce contact

• New Zealanders over 70 and those with certain medical conditions told to stay at home as much as they can to reduce risk of contact with the virus. There are 528,000 people aged 70-plus in New Zealand

• Workplaces to implement plans to reduce person-to-person contact, including work from home where possible

• Limit all non-essential domestic travel

Ardern said schools would remain open for now unless there was a case in a school, and if so, it would be closed for 72 hours to be cleaned.

"We will continue to have food supply in New Zealand," she said, asking people again not to panic-buy.

Doing that could deprive others of an item critical to them, such as families that need formula.

"Shopping must continue as normal - even if we are at alert level four, supermarkets will be open"

"Do not panic-buy at pharmacies ... products will be available."

She said capacity to test for Covid-19 will be increased. About 1500 tests took place yesterday.
