New Zealand received praise from the international community after the nation fast-tracked their response to the pandemic back in February, banning non-New Zealand nationals traveling from China and mandating a 14-day quarantine for those that did travel from China.

In March, Ardern completely locked down the entire nation. The country moved out of a level 4 lockdown in late April.

There have been less than 100 deaths reported in New Zealand since the outbreak of the virus back in February.
