Government reveals coronavirus public health campaign: Be Kind, wash your hands.
The Government has launched its coronavirus COVID-19 public health campaign, calling on New Zealanders to “unite against the virus and slow its spread”. In order to limit the number of infected patients, the Government has already introduced a number of measures, including travel restrictions, boosting funding for services like Healthline, and helping businesses pay for workers’ sick leave.
However, despite these efforts, officials believe New Zealand will continue to see cases, at least sporadic ones. So far, there has been no recorded community transmission in Aotearoa. To remind New Zealanders of what they can individually do to limit the spread of the virus, Health Minister Dr David Clark and Associate Health Minister Julie Anne Genter revealed the Government’s public health campaign on Wednesday.
