New Zealand's health ministry has declared the country free of COVID-19, joining other countries that have already done the same.
According to Reuters, New Zealand has no active case of the deadly disease for the first time since February 28.
Legit.ng gathers that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the country will lift all coronavirus measures from Tuesday, June 9.
Arden said: “While the job is not done, there is no denying this is a milestone ... Thank you, New Zealand.
“We are confident we have eliminated transmission of the virus in New Zealand for now, but elimination is not a point in time, it is a sustained effort.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Mauritius had declared that it is officially free of the deadly coronavirus that has taken the world by storm, becoming the second African country to declare virus-free status after infection.
According to the island nation’s official COVID-19 page, 322 people had recovered out of the 332 confirmed cases so far. 10 people have since died.
May 11 marked the fifteenth consecutive day that the no-new-case was recorded in the country.
A lockdown, however, remains in place to contain the possible spread of the virus.
Weeks ago, Mauritania declared itself coronavirus-free after six coronavirus patients recovered and left the hospital, while one person succumbed to the virus.
