Coronavirus: What lockdown ending could look like

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 8 April 2020

Covid-19 researchers are optimistic the level four restrictions could be lifted in at least some regions in a few weeks - but warn that New Zealanders should brace themselves to do things differently for up to 18 months.

The initial level four period is due to end on 23 April but Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said it's too early to make a decision on whether that will be extended.

With businesses, workers and parents of school-aged children all keen to get out from under level four's thumb, reporter Kate Newton asked experts when that might happen - and what it might look like.
