NEW ZEALAND: Per Radio New Zealand: "Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will join
Australia's Cabinet meeting tomorrow via video link to discuss the possibility
of a trans-Tasman bubble. Ardern briefed media at 4pm after her own government's
Cabinet meeting. "The meeting will discuss a range of matters in relation to the
covid response on both sides of the Tasman including the creation of a
trans-Tasman travel bubble." She said a trans-Tasman bubble - which would mean
New Zealanders and Australians being confident of being able to travel between
the countries without having to quarantine - was still some time off and had not
been discussed in an official capacity yet. She wouldn't rule out the
trans-Tasman travel bubble in level 2. She said the government was focused on
travel between New Zealand and Australia rather than with other Pacific nations
for now. "There is huge risk if Covid finds its way into Pacific Island nations
that are untouched by Covid. So I would want us to act cautiously and in unison
with the leaders of those countries."
