In New Zealand news, they have announced initial preparations to reopen its borders on Thursday 28th Oct 2021, aminst mounting pressure from Kiwis stranded abroad due to some of the world’s strictest pandemic travel restrictions since the epidemic.
Arrivals from a handful of tiny Pacific island governments will be given quarantine-free travel beginning as from next month November, according to Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins, who said that other low-risk countries will be evaluated early next year 2022. In the light of good news, Chris Hipkins also stated that the 14-day hotel quarantine period presently required on all international arrivals will be reduced to seven days in as from next month, and that home isolation would eventually be replaced.
He said the border had historically served as a bulwark for New Zealand’s viral response, but that due to a Delta-variant outbreak in Auckland recently, the majority of new cases were now being reported in the community.
In a total population of five million people, New Zealand has only had 28 Covid-19 deaths total since the pandemic in 2020, and its residents have had a very typical household life for the majority of the epidemic.
However, border facilities are becoming increasingly overburdened, with tens of thousands of New Zealanders who live abroad clamoring to reserve the 4,000 available quarantine rooms.
Chris, a spokesperson for the opposition Covid, said the plan was “bare minimum,” adding that fully vaccinated newcomers from low-risk nations should not be forced to isolate.
It’s past time for us to reopen our doors to the rest of the world. We can’t hide behind the fortifications of Fortress New Zealand forever.
We are also very aware of the pressure that’s been building at the border as the world begins to reconnect, and the increasing numbers of New Zealanders here and abroad who want to connect with their loved ones,
Chris Hipkins stated that the improvements will free up more rooms, with the goal of moving to home isolation in the beginning of first three months of 2022, while we wait for 90 percent of New Zealand population had been properly vaccinated.
