“We may not be in the disastrous position in which much of the rest of the world finds itself, but an elimination strategy causes a sense of hard work and it is perfectly normal for someone to feel tired “ Ardern said in a press conference today.

“COVID is hard work for everyone. “Thank you for coping once again,” he added.
