Despite the optimism of many yesterday, Auckland is facing another two weeks of lockdown while the rest of the country remains in level two. 

The Government did make some announcements of announcements 

It will finally reveal a vaccination target on Friday, as well as a new traffic light system. 

But this has some saying the chop and change of decisions shows the Government is flailing about 

Political commentator Bryce Edwards told Kate Hawkesby the Government are in a tough position.

"They've got people that want relaxation of the rules and others that want a circuit breaker going back up to Level 4, Ardern did her typical thing of going somewhere in the middle, which means the status quo is staying where we're at."
