Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Lockdown in New Zealand
New Zealand is preparing to enter a month-long nationwide lockdown from Wednesday night, with the entire country ordered to stay home apart from those in essential services.
On Monday the nation was given two days to prepare for schools, businesses and community services to turn off the lights in a desperate bid to stem the spread of the coronavirus. The move came after the number of cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand rose past 100.

Note : lockdown after 100 cases. Most countries have waited until they had a couple of hundred deaths.

Getting it right is easier when you've got an extra couple of weeks of lead time. It also helps if you're not handicapped by a "shrink the state" psychosis.
