New Zealand returns to the pub

New Zealand has reopened the bars and pubs today as the country continues its incredible success against the corona virus pandemic.

The easing of restrictions on business, meetings and travel was eased across the country in three stages from May 14.

The reopening of pubs marks the final stage of the country entering ‘Alert 2’ from their coronavirus action plan, allowing Kiwis to slowly return to everyday life.

New Zealand, with a population of five million, has registered 1,503 cases of coronavirus and only 21 deaths. The success is largely attributed to a strict closure imposed at the end of March.

New Zealand has also provided comprehensive information about the epidemic on a government website, including details on each case.

Ardern has also put forward the idea of ​​a four-day working week to boost tourism after the coronavirus pandemic.

She said a number of ideas were “bounced around” to support New Zealanders during the pandemic and get the most out of domestic travel.

The success of controlling the coronavirus has translated into a gauge boost for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, with new data showing that she has been the country’s most popular leader for a century now – with elections in September this year.

Poll data collected by the NZ Herald showed that 59.5 percent of people want them to continue as leaders, a massive 20.8 points increase since the last poll in February – when the corona virus spread but before the country came into a lockdown.
