New Zealand lifted all domestic coronavirus restrictions on Monday after its final COVID-19 patient was given the all clear with PM Jacinda Ardern revealing she danced around her living room when told about the milestone.
While strict border controls will remain in place, Ardern said restrictions such as social distancing and limits on public gatherings were no longer needed.
We are confident we have eliminated transmission of the virus in New Zealand for now, she said in a televised address, saying Kiwis had united in unprecedented ways to crush the virus.
New Zealand with a population of 5 million, have had 1,154 confirmed Coronavirus cases and 22 deaths.
