WELLINGTON (Reuters) – New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Saturday that the country’s largest city, Auckland, will be on lockdown for seven days from Sunday after a case of a coronavirus community of unknown origin was recorded.

The rest of New Zealand will be placed under Level 2 restrictions, which include restricting public gatherings, she said at a press conference.

In mid-February, Auckland’s nearly 2 million residents were put into a three-day lockdown after a family of three was diagnosed with the more communicable British variant of COVID-19.
