“At the time of publication, New Zealand had recorded fewer than 1500 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 20 deaths. On March 23, a month after the country had recorded its first case, New Zealand committed to an elimination strategy. A few days later, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a strict national lockdown when it only had 102 cases and zero deaths. Her swift decision making won international praise, including from WHO.
New Zealand’s decision to pursue an elimination approach was a vastly different approach to usual pandemic planning, which has historically been based on a mitigation model and focuses on delaying the arrival of the virus, followed by a range of measures to flatten the curve of cases and deaths.”The Lancet
“The number of new COVID-19 cases dipped below 300 on Saturday for the first time in more than a month.

It is the lowest number of new cases since March 31 when 260 new cases of the virus were confirmed.
It should be noted that the dip in new cases comes as the province continues to ramp up testing to record-high levels.”CP24
“For the first time since mid-March, the state reported no new COVID-19 cases statewide Friday. But that brief moment of relief didn’t last long as Saturday brought three new cases.
But even with the overall low daily case counts, authorities said while the development is positive, residents shouldn’t grow complacent.”HawaiiNewsNow
“A lawmaker from a COVID-battered state has introduced a bill to forgive student loan debt for health care workers treating patients on the coronavirus front line, many of whom still owe hundreds of thousands of dollars from medical school.
The legislation comes in response to doctors and nurses speaking out against hazard pay, a 50% bonus Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed the federal government give front-line workers for risking their lives during the pandemic.”ABC News
“Vietnam has not recorded any new Covid-19 infections in the community for 21 straight days, and the number of cases still stands at 271, the National Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control said Thursday.
Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported that among the total, 131 are imported cases, and they were put in quarantine upon their arrival in the country.
So far, 232 patients or 86 per cent have recovered from the coronavirus disease.”The Edge Markets
