New Zealand’s third case of COVID-19 to emerge this week traveled to Auckland from Lahore. The Director-General of Health, Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, confirmed that the man, in his 60s, is in quarantine after coming to New Zealand on Flight NZ124 after transiting through Doha and Melbourne. He stayed at an isolation hotel before being moved to quarantine.
Brenton Tarrant accused of killing 51 worshippers at two mosques in New Zealand in March pleaded not guilty to multiple murder and terrorism charges. He appeared in Christchurch High Court via an audiovisual link from a maximum-security prison in Auckland. He sat silently while his lawyer Shane Tait said his client pleaded “not guilty to all charges”.
