“Nearly every case identified since April 1, is primarily as a result of overseas travel or contact of someone with the virus and often in existing clusters. The number of individual cases that we don’t have an obvious connection in that period now stands at only 8.” Jacinda Ardern said.
Alert level 4 will be downgraded to a level three at 11:59 pm on Monday, April 27.
“New Zealand will move out of alert level 4 lockdown at 11:59 pm on Monday, April 27. One week from today.

“We will then hold at alert level 3 for two weeks before reviewing how we are tracking again, and making further decisions at cabinet on the May 11,” Jacinda Ardern said.
“We looked at the gains we have made in our results, but also our systems. We considered that the longer we are in lockdown, the less likely it is to go back.”
“We also considered moving alert levels on April 23, which is in just 48 hours.”
The sacrifice made to date has been tremendous, and the cabinet wanted to make sure they could lock in their gains and give themselves some additional certainty.
“Waiting to move alert levels next week cost us just two more business days but gives us much greater long term health and economic returns down the track. It means we are less likely to have to go backward.” Jacinda Ardern said.
Ardern mentioned we would move when we are ready and when we are safe.
“We will only be successful if everyone is willing to play their part in finding it wherever it is,”
“Stay strong, stay home, be kind, and let’s finish what we started,” said Ardern.
