New Zealand Opens Mandatory Quarantine Camps for Covid19 Patients

Headlines Health World

The government of New Zealand is creating camps where individuals will be required to quarantine if they test positive for Covid19.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced in a video that if people in the camps refuse to be tested they will be required to stay an additional two weeks.

She called the warning a “pretty good incentive” to get tested for Covid19.

“You either get your test done and make sure you are cleared, or we will keep you in a facility longer,” she said. “So I think most people look at that and say, ‘I will take the test.'”
