New Zealand Hosts 20,000-Person Concert To Celebrate 2 Months Without Covid

A few days ago, the island nation of New Zealand hosted a 20,000-person outdoor concert where attendees didn’t have to wear a face mask or observe social distancing. The concert was to mark the nation’s second month without any new Covid-19 transmissions occurring between citizens.

The concert was the first stop in the six-stop summer tour of the native soul-pop band Six60. The event happened at the Waitangi Sports Grounds close to the nation’s northern tip.

Before this concert though, the country had earlier on hosted various New Year’s Eve music festivals. These festivals also involved large crowds. The festivals included Rhythm and Vines, Rhythm and Alps, and the Northern Bass festivals, each held in different parts of the nation.

Now marks the second extended period of time in which New Zealand has avoided any community infections among its population of nearly 5 million people. The nation first achieved three months without any new infection from June to August 2020.

Part of the nation’s success can be attributed to the fact that the country’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern instituted a strict country-wide lockdown in March 2020. This happened way before the country even recorded any Covid-19 related deaths.

New Zealand is one of the 27 countries that have largely tamed the coronavirus pandemic, according to endcoronavirus.org.
