I really need to pull up the decries of destroying the economy during that time before Australia followed NZs approach to close the borders to non-citizens? Remember that NZ moved before Australia.
They moved on the same day:
March 19: All non-citizens and non-residents are banned from entering the country from 9pm, March 21. Citizens and family must self-quarantine for 14 days.
The following day, 19 March...
For the first time in history, the government closes the country's borders to all but New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.
