Aug 09, 2020 17:03 IST

As nations continue to break grim novel coronavirus records, New Zealand under the leadership of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is leading the battle against the deadly. The island nation for the 100th straight day on Sunday reported no new cases of the infection and the current 23 active cases were detected at the country’s borders. With a total of 1569 infections and 22 deaths so far, the pre-coronavirus lifestyle is gradually springing back in the country. A strict lockdown imposed on March 19, when only 100 residents were infected, helped the country of 5 million people to overcome the pandemic. While the country is being praised for successfully eliminating the community transmission, the South Pacific nation has also geared up for the possibility of a second wave of infections.
