New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has called off her wedding, due to further tightening in the Covid-19 restrictions. She was to be married on Sunday (23 January) but because of the increasing cases of Omicron variant, she cancelled their marriage and urged people to be careful of Corona. Announcing the strict restrictions, she said that I have cancelled my marriage for the time being. Under the new restrictions, only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to attend ceremonies like weddings. Expressing regret over the stringent restrictions, she said that I am also among the common people of New Zealand who are experiencing this after the pandemic and who are trapped in this scenario. I genuinely apologize for this.
9 cases of Omicron were reported after a wedding ceremony in New Zealand started. Due to this panic situation spread among the people and since then the risk of community spread has increased here. At the same time, a family had returned to South Iceland by plane after attending the wedding ceremony from Auckland. After this, the corona report of two members came positive. Due to this, a ban was announced in New Zealand and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern also cancelled her marriage.
Ardern and her longtime partner, Clark Geffard, never announced their wedding date. But now due to Corona, she has cancelled the marriage. However, after the cases of corona subside, both can once again announce a new date.
In 2017, she became New Zealand's youngest Prime Minister. He reclaimed control in October of last year. She led her Labor Party to its most significant election triumph in a half-century. In New Zealand, her working technique is well regarded. Asked by reporters how she felt about the cancellation of her wedding to longtime partner and fishing-show host Clarke Gayford, Ardern replied: "Such is life."
She added, "I am no different to, dare I say it, thousands of other New Zealanders who have had much more devastating impacts felt by the pandemic, the most gutting of which is the inability to be with a loved one sometimes when they are gravely ill. That will far, far outstrip any sadness I experience."
