New Zealand is largely lifting its nationwide Corona lockdown after three weeks. Restrictions would be eased starting Wednesday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Monday (Sept. 6). Only in the major city of Auckland on the North Island, the center of the current outbreak, would the rules initially continue to apply, Ardern said. The government in the island nation had imposed a nationwide lockdown on Aug. 18 after the discovery of a single case of corona. At times in late August, more than 80 cases a day were recorded. In the meantime, however, the number has dropped to about 20. Still, some rules are expected to remain in place. New Zealand has long pursued a zero-covid strategy, allowing people to live largely normally – even without mandatory masks for months.

Health ministers from the top 20 industrialized and emerging economies (G-20) plan to push for greater equity in the distribution of Corona vaccines worldwide. The conditions are in place to agree on a “Rome Pact” for this purpose, Italy’s health minister, Roberto Speranza, said Sunday evening (Sept. 5) in Rome. A mandatory point of the agreement, he said, is to create conditions under which there is a right for everyone to receive vaccinations and they are not the privilege of a few. The goal of the two-day G-20 meeting of health ministers in Italy is “a strong message of cooperation, solidarity and justice, under the conviction that no one is left behind,” it said.
