New Zealand Wins Over Coronavirus – level 1

25-05-2020 15:00

The situation with the coronavirus is very good in New Zealand. Only one person gets sick in the last four days. People are happy. The government is opening schools, restaurants, and businesses.

Many countries in the world have a lot of problems with the coronavirus. However, New Zealand fights the virus quickly. Many people ask how it is possible.

New Zealand lies on an island. The population is small. The virus spreads slowly.

Also, the government works fast. The government closes borders, schools, and businesses when the virus starts in the country. The government speaks well with people. People follow strict rules.

Medical workers test a lot of people in a short time. It helps stop the virus.

The government asks people to be careful. The virus can come back.

Difficult words: island (a piece of land in the sea), population (people who live in a place), border (an official line between two countries).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
