'Bunker down': New Zealand declares state of emergency

Post by Chrisemmy »

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has declared a state of national emergency as the country prepared to go into a month-long lockdown at midnight (11:00 GMT).

The country has 205 cases, but Ardern says modelling suggests there could actually be thousands.

All non-essential services, schools and offices will be shut and people told to stay at home.

"Make no mistake this will get worse before it gets better," Ardern told Parliament. "We will have a lag and cases will increase for the next week or so. Then we'll begin to know how successful we have been."
