Zero Covid Strategy

Zero-Covid is not a strategy for more lockdowns, it is a strategy to prevent further lockdowns.

It is a strategy that prioritises public health by putting in place testing and tracing systems, extra resources in health care, ensuring workplace safety, protecting those who cannot work and the vulnerable and decongesting overcrowded settings such as factories and housing. A Zero Covid strategy allows us to get the level of the virus so low that it can be tested, tracked, traced, isolated and therefore contained so that there is virtually no community transmission. The key is to contain the virus so it can be prevented from spreading so that we can lift restrictions and prevent perpetual cycles of lockdown.
