Considering the spread of the delta variant, the Corona model country New Zealand has announced a new guide in the fight against the virus. The government announced Friday that corona restrictions will be relaxed when 90 percent of the population is vaccinated.
Prime Minister Jacintha Artern said she was initially opposed to setting the vaccine target. No one should back down. “It is very difficult for us to maintain our strategy of weeding the delta variety. It is difficult for their tents to reach our communities and shake them up.” So far, strict restrictions, such as local locking, still apply in some cases.
Once the vaccination target has been reached, a traffic light system should be introduced, depending on the number of cases and the load on the health system. For example, as far as green is concerned, some bars that have so far been classified as high-risk stores may be fully open to those who have been vaccinated. Vaccines are like armor. “If you want to do the things you want to, you have to be vaccinated,” Artern said. He also acknowledged that with the new strategy, more corona cases will arise
