Posted by Christina Daniels

New Zealand has removed the lockdown imposed on the city of Auckland in the wake of the coronavirus. With this decision, the government has made it mandatory to wear masks in public transport. The country’s largest city was in lockdown for more than two weeks following an outbreak of the Coronavirus earlier this month. Let it be said that a long time ago it was said that in New Zealand, now the coronavirus has been eradicated or is on the verge of being eradicated, but cases of corona are again coming up in the country. There is no community transmission even though cases are coming up.

Health Minister Chris Hipkins said on Monday that it was safe to reopen Auckland, as all recent infections have come from positive exposure. He said, ‘We are already seeing signs of the city being normal. New Zealand reported nine new virus infections on Monday, including four of the recently returned passengers who are in quarantine.

So far, more than 25 million people worldwide have been infected with Kovid-19 due to the epidemic caused by Coronavirus. Since mid-July, an average of one million new cases is being reported globally every four days. Corona in India is infecting people quite rapidly. In India, 78 thousand 7 hundred 61 infections were reported in just one day, which is more than 77 thousand 2 hundred 99 cases in one day in America in mid-July. After this increase of infection in the South Asian country, the total number of cases is 2 crore 50 lakh 74 thousand 7 hundred 51.

According to the data released by the Johns Hopkins University of America, by Monday morning, the number of coronavirus infections in the world, including all countries, has increased to 21 million 36 thousand 68 and the number of infected people who died is 8 lakh 45 thousand 73. The University’s Center for Systems Science and Engineering revealed this in its latest data update.
