Days after announcing the relaxation of the country’s strict border control measures, Prime Minister Ardern showed symptoms of COVID-19 on the evening of May 13 and tested positive for the SARS-CoV virus. -2 before another positive result from a rapid antigen test on the morning of May 14, Office Prime Minister of New Zealand said in a statement. Ms Ardern’s symptoms are said to be “moderate”.
Ms Ardern’s husband, Clarke Gayford, tested positive on May 8 and Ms Ardern has been in isolation since.
Accordingly, the New Zealand Prime Minister will have to isolate until the morning of May 21 and will not be at the National Assembly of this country next week, when the New Zealand Government has two events focusing on the plan to reduce emissions on May 21. May 16 and on the budget on May 19.
Ms Ardern will do some telework and New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson will attend a regular post-cabinet press conference on May 16.
Prime Minister Ardern said: “This is an important week for the Government and I regret that I couldn’t be there. Our emissions reduction plan sets the path to achieving our land zero carbon target. Water and budgets address the long-term future and security of New Zealand’s health system.
But as I said earlier this week, the COVID-19 quarantine has been a “very Kiwi experience” this year for me and my whole family.
