New Zealand has confirmed the presence of the contagious Delta variant

New Zealand — like neighbouring Australia — has been slow to vaccinate. Less than 20% of the population are fully vaccinated, according to data collated by CNN.
Ardern said New Zealand only needed to look at Australia’s New South Wales state — which is home to the country’s most populous city Sydney — to see what could happen. New South Wales confirmed a record 634 new Covid-19 cases on Wednesday despite weeks of lockdown.
The state has recorded more than 9,200 local cases since June 16, when the Delta outbreak began with one case.
“What the data is telling us in the last few days is that we haven’t seen the worst of it,” New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian warned Wednesday.
New Zealand will be under the strictest level lockdown for three days starting from 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, local time. Under level four lockdown, everyone must stay home and businesses are closed aside from essential services such as supermarkets and pharmacies. Auckland and the Coromandel region are facing a seven-day lockdown.
