He did not return to his homeland for the next 30 years. He said his life and writing were defined by exile. BBC news. Come back to news out coming up. The latest from Myanmar with the Internet has been cut and the army is increasing its pressure on protesters following the KUB first Don't New Zealand's prime minister, Just Linda Arden has ordered the country's biggest city Auckland to go into lockdown after the discovery of three new local cases of covert 19. I've been hearing more from Corazon Miller, the reporter for New Zealand's National News Channel TV and said who's based in Auckland, the prime minister announced that Auckland had to go into a level three lockdown. And the rest of the country to go into level two. So what That means for people who aren't living in New Zealand is that fork wonders. They have to stay home and this they're essential workers. So there's there's no work or no school unless you're a child of someone who has an essential worker. People can still get takeaways could still get groceries. But they're not allowed to go out to restaurants and cafes and lived a normal life. While the relatively normal life we've been living for the past few months for the rest of the country that they are a little, too, which means that small gatherings only so less than 100, people can gather, but anything large and then that's not allowed. And have to social distance on public transport. Wear face masks. This all came about as a result of these three community cases and the south off Auckland. The reason that the lockdown was announced was because no one really knows where these with the origin of the virus, WASP So far, they haven't been able to trace them back to our managed isolation facilities. Do we know whether these air new variants of the virus So it's true early to say yet I've heard the director general said earlier this evening that potentially we might have some results of the genomic testing later this evening museum time. I haven't seen anything yet, so it might be that they are not so overnight or in the morning. The results of that genomic testing should hopefully give us a little bit more often indication of whether or not these cases could be linked to a case that's currently in one of our isolation facilities. If that is the case that would alleviate some of the concerns, and it could see the lockdown not end up being extended longer than the initial three days that's been announced. So obviously that's what everyone in Auckland and the rest of the country is hoping for. We all know that we've been feeling lucky to get this far. But having to go back into another lockdown is still pretty hard for for a lot of people. It's hard for businesses who were hoping that this relative sense of normality would continue for some time yet, so everyone is just kind of waiting with bated breath. Yeah, I didn't wonder what it's like, because lots of parts of the world was speaking from the UK where we're becoming used to lock downs and long lockdowns and normal life hasn't returned over the past year. I mean, the way you've had big chunks of normal life. Does that mean your farm or aware of what What you stand to lose a lot of people that I've spoken to colleagues and friends we've all been doing. Why are we don't want to do this again. But the reality is you also feel a little bit guilty because we know we've been fairly privileged. I mean, many of us have friends that live overseas, have relatives that live overseas and know how much they've struggled. So when you look at what the rest of the world is dealing with looking at just the three day lockdown, it doesn't seem like such a big deal and I guess also is, the prime minister said. The whole reason that we're going into the lockdown is because we want to be able to return to the sense of normality earlier. She wants to make sure that these cases are more widespread than just this initial three and hopefully by by locking down early and limiting the potential spread of transmission will be able to return back to this relative sense of normality that we have had for for some time.

He was able to provide a positive update on the national vaccine. Rollout the scheme has just reported. Seeing fifty million people receiving their first dose and as a result of this progress the government is facing pressure from its own side to ease the current lockdown as fast as possible. Okay now a group if you will conservative colleagues have written to the prime minister. They say there's no justification for any restrictions to remain on the end of april because by then all nine poverty groups should have been given a vaccine dose and those groups of course represent ninety nine percent of caveats around eighty percent of citations. They wrong with nuts. All right that's the roadmap to get ninety nine percent. Today's risk of dying old map to ease restrictions by the end of april. That's edison you. Putting words in my mouth on.

And we won't have results off their first those buying september that's the roadmap reached out. We need to evidence based in analyzing all progress tools. They're saying that. If these people off vaccinated nine percy groups then restrictions should end to agree with on on Taking a will slightly all tree a commitment without reviewing the impact the measures of hiw own the transmission and the missions. Old leave aren't in that sense. We are making sure that as we go to take the steps from the vaccine but then you courses we open up scores.

Are you planning on reopening all schools to all pupils at the same time or are you considering a staggered approach where for example preschools day at fast or some people's in exam. Yeah great smart guy. I is a good question. Another be teaches Which is why with the approach. We've taken we always said only. A twenty second affects monday week. The prime minister will review all the evidence. The impact of lockdown the impacts of the vaccine are on the transmission rates and the number of people getting hospitals with coronavirus will then set out for would look your accent. You're right on the eight of march. We are aiming. We are hoping to get schools back. The precise details. We need to make sure we set out. Once we evaluated order the evidence so the prime minister will get more. Stay on the twenty second but the aim is to get schools reopening of spokespeople out on the say. This is the answer then. You haven't decided yet whether that's all schools or some schools. That's dependent on the data yakking. We need to wait to evaluate the data to calculate in the allow. These plans we put in place in the coast.

Opponents want to set up and you expect to professor john watson who served as part of the world health organization's recent cove investigation team in wuhan. He gave more his thoughts on how the virus might have spread now. Your team came up with four different possible scenarios about how the pandemic might have originally started. What in your view personally is the most likely of these. All four of hypotheses remain on the table author who's come the probabilities. There is an animal reservoir somewhat and the infection to humans probably through an intermediate house intermediate host that is perhaps more plentiful. Perhaps it's the some things that has more contact with humans and In which further adaptation of virus could take place that would allow the opportunity to spend humans that we think is the most likely sat where we feel the absolute priority for the what needs to be focused so to be absolutely clear. The possibility this escape from one of the two big wuhan research institutes and laboratories is not ruled out not ruled out. That's correct mar pressed watson on the rigor of the. Who's mission which has been called into question by the biden administration as well as by a member of the team itself did does sound to me like you had many conversations with the chinese about their analysis and didn't see much of the original raw data. Your colleague dominic dwyer who's an australian. Microbiologist on the team said they showed us a couple of examples. But that's not the same as doing all of them which is standard epidemiological investigation. So then you know. The interpretation of that data becomes more limited. He's right andy. I'm not sure that that really characterizes the mission as a whole there was a lot of sharing of rotation in various areas in which we are looking at with respect specific details of the original cases there are more data that we would like to have the opportunity to see And it would be easier if we had that But this is just the start of a process were there a relatively short time quite that misspent Really beginning to understand the wave which all colleagues worked the kind of makes nicole the way in which they've done that and the information.
