Jacinda Ardern has ordered New Zealand’s largest city back into lockdown on as Covid-19 cases continued to be detected in the community.

The latest restrictions in Auckland will last at least seven days and come less than two weeks after a three-day shutdown in the city.

Ardern said a new Covid-19 case confirmed today could not be directly connected to other positive tests over the last two weeks

From Sunday morning the city’s 1.7 million residents must stay at home except for essential shopping and work.

Schools and non-essential shops will close, and entry in and out of the city will be restricted.

The remainder of the country will be under level two restrictions.
