Coronavirus: New Zealand marks 100 days without community spread – BBC News

But officials have warned against complacency, saying a second wave of cases was still possible.”Achieving 100 days without community transmission is a significant milestone. However, as we all know, we can’t afford to be complacent,” Director-General of Health, Dr Ashley Bloomfield, said on Sunday.

“We have seen overseas how quickly the virus can re-emerge and spread in places where it was previously under control, and we need to be prepared to quickly stamp out any future cases in New Zealand.”

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, struck a similar tone, expressing delight tempered with caution.
