After 102 days without community transmission in New Zealand, there are now four new cases of Covid-19.
The source of the four new cases, which are based in south Auckland, has not yet been identified.
In an urgent press conference on Tuesday night, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a three-day level 3 lockdown of the Auckland region, and urged anyone who is unwell to seek health advice and get a test. The rest of the country moves to level 2.
