Staff and students from that college should not have contact with other people, Bloomfield said, and they should also keep their distance from people in their own households.

As of Wednesday night, New Zealanders will largely be confined to their own homes in a lockdown far more severe than Australian restrictions.

Four were confirmed and number of other cases were being treated a potentially community transmission.

There are now six people in hospital with Covid-19, all in a stable condition.

Across the country there were 1421 tests processed yesterday.

An announcement is also expected about whether non-food home deliveries will be allowed.

Earlier this week, Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) director Sarah Stuart-Black said powers under a national state of emergency would "enable us to be able to close or restrict access to roads or public places, remove or secure unsafe structures or materials, provide rescue, first aid, food, shelter, conserve essential supplies, regulate traffic, dispose of fatalities in terms of people that have passed away or animals, enter into premises to rescue people or save lives, evacuate premises or places, remove vehicles and vessels, requisition equipment and materials and assistance".

"An influx of people who don't have tickets for a crossing are turning up", police said, advising those without bookings to stay away.

'Each of you has a role in helping to save a life, ' she said.

The country will go into a total lockdown for at least one month at midnight to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic, she told at a news conference.

They may exercise special powers during a state of emergency, and will liaise with other agencies to ensure the most effective use of police resources.

Legislation will keep the state of emergency in place for seven days, but it can be extended.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern has reportedly declared a national emergency in the country as over 47 new COVID-19 cases emerged within 24 hours.

Refusal to comply with these rules may result in up to three months in jail, and/or a NZ$5,000 fine for an individual or NZ$50,000 for a corporate.

Let's all do our bit to unite against Covid-19.

According to the reports, Ardern warned the citizens that the lockdown will be strictly enforced.

Insp Sweeney said police would take action if required to ensure people behaved responsibly, including seeing people did not travel unless it was essential to do so, but he said he hoped enforcement action would not be necessary.

This means that if deemed absolutely necessary, the government can do almost anything that needs to be done to stop the epidemic of COVID-19 in New Zealand.
