New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the country should aim to reduce its Covid-19 alert level from 2 to 1 by June 22.
Alert level 1 means no restrictions on domestic transport or gatherings, and all schools and workplaces can open.
If measures were relaxed to this level, the government risk assessment would be that "the disease is contained in New Zealand," and only "isolated household transmission could be occurring," according to the country's alert system website.
"It's the government's view that we should move as quickly as we safely can to alert level 1. On that basis, Cabinet will check in again on alert level 2 settings on June 8, and we've agreed that no later than June 22, four weeks from today, we will consider the move to alert level 1," Ardern said in a post-Cabinet media conference.
"The fact that we are even making these decisions shows the success we've had to date in fighting the virus. It highlights we can now make choices many other countries can't."
