A new survey of New Zealanders shows general support for lockdowns to eliminate Covid-19, but has warning signs about the population’s patience for future restrictions and mandatory vaccinations, RNZ reveals. Research NZ surveyed 1000 people from 17 – 20 September, asking whether they thought the country should continue using lockdowns as an elimination tool, and if vaccination should be mandatory for certain groups. Of the 70% who support lockdowns, 47% support them only until the vaccination target has been reached. 19% were against lockdowns, but, “Whilst they say they don’t want to continue with lockdowns, many of them want to have strict rules around mask wearing, testing and MIQ.”
