New Zealand’s Latest COVID-19 case came from Lahore

New Zealand reported a third case of COVID-19 on Thursday after becoming coronavirus free for 24 days. The Director-General of Health, Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, confirmed that the third coronavirus case to emerge this week traveled to Auckland from Lahore.

The man, in his 60s, is in quarantine after coming to New Zealand on Flight NZ124 after transiting through Doha and Melbourne. The case also raises question marks on the efficiency of Pakistani authorities that claim to be testing everyone flying in and out of the country.



Earlier on Tuesday, there was a breach in a quarantine facility in New Zealand as reports stated that people had left isolation centers earlier than the set date and later disappeared. The embarrassing fallout has once again sparked fears of a second wave of COVID-19 in New Zealand.
