New Zealand (Info Corner Online) Today 27th April 2020 The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has explained that what alert level 3 will look like.
Since several days, the new cases are in single figures and according to her, the Virus is currently eliminated but the Government officials have warned that, it does not mean it is an end of the Coronavirus cases in New Zealand.
