An argument against the legality of the Covid-19 Lockdown put in place to stop the spread of the virus in 2020, is being heard in the Court of Appeal, TVNZ reports. The country was placed into lockdown on 25 March last year, following the declaration of state of national emergency, and four days before the country reported its first Covid-19 related death. Meanwhile, the Crown and New Zealand Law Society, acting as an independent voice to help the Court with its judgement, will also provide arguments.
