New Zealand's still getting comfortable with the chaotic dance being played with Australian states over Covid-19.

There are no new community cases in Sydney today -- after two people tested positive for the virus earlier this week.

New South Wales' state premier says our Government's decision to pause the trans-Tasman bubble until midnight Saturday was an over-reaction.

Melbourne epidemiologist Tony Blakely told Heather du Plessis-Allan no state knows what the best response is, but New Zealand's is the most extreme.

"New Zealand is just learning how to interact with the crazy eight-state territory system here as a extra player and being risk-averse initially while being too risk averse, New Zealand will find its feet in this arrangement."
