New Zealand confirms two new cases of Covid-19

New Zealand has confirmed that it has two new cases of the coronavirus, both related to recent travel from the UK, ending a 24-day streak of no new infections in the country. According to New Zealand’s director general of health, Dr Ashley Bloomfield, the two women, aged in their 30s and 40s, are from the same family, and were allowed out of their 14-day mandated quarantine due to ‘compassionate reasons’. New Zealand lifted all social and economic restrictions except border controls last week after declaring it had no new or active cases of the coronavirus, one of the first countries in the world to return to pre-pandemic normality
