New Zealand's latest lockdown is set to cost the economy $440million a week but that figure could grow if the outbreak worsens, economists have warned.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the drastic move to force New Zealand back into lockdown on Wednesday after four new COVID-19 cases emerged.
The shutdown is expected to last until midnight Friday but the number of cases are continuing to rise, sparking fears the nation could be hit by a second wave.

And how many have died in New Zealand of the virus?
The IDIOCRACY lives.
Very bizarre . I mean I would understand a mask order type thing for NZ but really?!
“And how many have died in New Zealand of the virus?”
New Zealand population is 4.88 million. Total deaths as last reported by Worldometers is 22, since the beginning of the virus outbreak.
That would be about 4 deaths per million population.
This woman prime minister of New Zealand will be proven a fool. The moment the lockdown is lifted, a new surge of cases will resume. She will be chasing the virus forever, like Captain Ahab chased the white whale in Moby Dick.
She and her country were boasting of their genius in stopping the virus. As it turns out, the virus cannot be stopped by these lockdowns. In the process, she is destroying her country and causing more suffering, by far, from the economic disaster than the people might suffer from the virus.
Her obsession with trying to keep a few people alive is forcing them to live lives NOT WORTH LIVING.
The operation was a success but THE PATIENT DIED.
Time will prove this woman wounded her country deeply with her misguided tyranny.
the draconian and costly covid restrictions in NZ and Australa -
NZ #125 - 4.5 deaths per million;
Australia #93 - 15 deaths per million
only make sense if they are meant to facilitate the continuance of the covid hysteria in the US in the run-up to the 2020 election.
and I am not joking.
She is a disaster for New Zealand. It is insanity that she is still in Office.
You're right. It's a global effort.
The news cases in Auckland started with a woman coming country from the Philippines...I thought the border was still closed...
The moment the lockdown is lifted, a new surge of cases will resume. She will be chasing the virus forever, like Captain Ahab chased the white whale in Moby Dick.
Bingo. Exactly. The lockdowns just delay the inevitable path toward herd immunity.
Over four measly CASES?
How many hospitalizations?
How many ICU bed utlizations?
How many intubations?
How many death?
I hear crickets.
Pandemic paranoia without parallel.
