Amid possible fears of the fourth wave of coronavirus, New Zealand reported 20,907 new community cases of COVID-19. Among the new community infections, 4,291 were in the largest city Auckland.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Wednesday that people will no longer need to be vaccinated to visit places like retail stores, restaurants and bars from April 4. Gone, too, will be a requirement to scan QR barcodes at those venues.
