    "We are temporarily suspending entry into New Zealand for travellers from India... The suspension will start from 1600 local time on April 11 and will be in place until April 28. I want to emphasize that while arrivals of COVID from India has prompted this measure, we are looking at how we manage high-risk points of departure generally. This is not a country-specific risk assessment...," Ardern said at a press conference in Wellington.

    According to reports, the government will deliberate upon measures to deal with the crisis in the meantime. New Zealand has virtually eliminated COVID-19 within its borders and has not reported any community transmission for about 40 days.
