Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Monday she was confident New Zealand has halted the spread of the coronavirus after the last known infected person in the country recovered.  It has been 17 days since the last new case was reported in New Zealand, and Monday also marked the first time since late February that there have been no active cases. "We are confident we have eliminated transmission of the virus in New Zealand for now, but elimination is not a point in time, it is a sustained effort."
