Socially distanced queues mounting into the hundreds, phones running hot, and chaos as the capital city tries to clear itself of Covid-19.

The Wellington region is now in alert level two after an Australian man who spent the weekend in the city tested positive for the virus after returning to Sydney.

The traveller covered extensive ground in the central city, visiting heavily populated bars, cafes and tourist attractions like Te Papa.
