Auckland to remain under Level 3 COVID restrictions

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern stated that Auckland will remain at Level 3 of the country's coronavirus level response system as cases continue to rise in the country.

Ardern warned that the government cannot keep the Delta variant contained, saying that the measures in Auckland have given it time to formulate a proper response. However, she also said that starting from next week some restrictions in the city will be eased, including reopening retail stores.

In general, Ardern was optimistic about the state of the pandemic in the country, saying that the high vaccination levels will allow the government to ease restrictions "safely and carefully." She also said that the higher number of cases was not unexpected, but stated that hospitalizations remain at "manageable" levels.
