However, how did New Zealand win the battle of the pandemic? From the very beginning, Wellington’s goal was neither containment nor slowing down the infection or immunity of the flock, but the immediate total suppression of the virus. The premier played ahead:

- quarantine at the borders
- then carpet swabs
- contact tracking
On March 23, when the pandemic was still at an early stage, and the infected were only 100 imposed a month of total lockdown, then extended by a week. A strategy that proved successful because the contagion curve approached zero in just two weeks. Despite these data, Ardern decided not to relax the restrictions for Easter in order to “defeat” the disease ultimately. The New Zealand method of “elimination” rather than “containment” is being studied. “Compared to the rest of the world, we have done something incredible,” said the premier.
