New Zealand resumes refugee intake programme as COVID-19 fears ease

New Zealand will start receiving refugees again this month nearly a year after the country had shut its borders owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. A group of 35 refugees will arrive in the country in February and about 210 refugees are expected by June-end. Arrivals will have to complete a 14-day quarantine in government-managed isolation facilities.
