新西兰总理婕森达·阿德恩(Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern)宣布,为了减少病毒传播,政府将新西兰预警级别提升为二级(减少接触)。

“保护新西兰人的健康安全是我们的首要目标,我们必须采取果断措施以避免最坏的情况在这里发生。”

“新西兰正在与一场空前的全球传染病作斗争。要赢得这场斗争,我们必须要采取严厉措施,并尽早采取行动来减慢病毒的传播速度。”

“我宣布了一项四个级别的新冠病毒预警系统,以递进的形式定义了每个级别对人与人的接触,旅行以及商业运营的限制。”

“国际形势正在迅速变化,而我们控制病毒传播的手段和应对措施也将迅速改变,这需要我们给民众提供非常明确的指示。引入这一预警系统能够让民众看到这些必要的变化,并为此做好准备。”

“基于医学专家的建议和其他国家发生的情况,我宣布将新西兰预警级别提升为二级,即减少接触。这会对我们的日常生活造成不小的影响,然而为了大家的生命健康安全,这却是非常必要的。

“70岁以上的人,免疫力低下或患有某些特定疾病的人从现在开始需要尽量待在家中。我希望大家能够帮助和支持身边的老年人,跟他们保持联系,给他们送食物和其他生活必需品。”

“我还呼吁各个企业和单位也行动起来。你们可能已经制定了紧急计划让员工可以在家中或者远距离工作。现在是实施这些计划的时候了。”

“在此预警级别上,卫生医务工作人员,运输和邮政工作人员,超市和食品生产工作人员以及其他必要岗位工作人员将继续在其岗位工作。”

 “需要着重强调的是,在每个预警级别上,新西兰各地的超市都将保持营业。”

“我们还要求民众取消不必要的国内旅行。我们需要人们大大减少与其他人的接触,其中包括不同城市间非必要的见面。”

“这些措施符合我们国家的利益。我们知道民众,商业企业和体育赛事都会受到影响,但这些短期的影响是为了全体民众的健康安全以及我们国家的利益。”

“我了解许多新西兰人都在为此感到焦虑。这个预警系统能够给大家提供确定性,让大家能够为不同情况做好准备。请保持坚强,保持友善,团结起来共同抗击病毒。”

“New Zealand is fighting anunprecedented global pandemic. We must fight by going hard and going early withnew measures to slow the transmission of the virus.

“Today I am announcing a fourstage COVID-19 Alert Level system, with escalating restrictions on humancontact, travel and business operations.

“The international situation ischanging rapidly and we need to clearly sign-post the changes New Zealanderswill be asked to make as we step up our efforts to limit the spread of thevirus. The alert system means people can see and plan for the kinds ofrestrictions we may be required to put in place, which may be required rapidly.

“Based on expert medical adviceand international evidence I am moving New Zealand to Alert Level 2, ReduceContact. This will have a significant disruption on how we go about our dailylives, but it is necessary to protect lives.

“People over 70 years of age, orpeople who are immunocompromised or have certain pre-existing conditions, needto stay at home as much as they can from now on.

“I’m asking everyone to supportour older New Zealanders by doing things like keeping in contact with them anddropping off food or other supplies.
