A Kiwi woman has come up with a way to make New Zealand's daily COVID-19 press conferences a little more exciting while also providing some entertainment during the lockdown.
Her daily COVID-19 "bingo" game was posted to a Facebook group and it's become an instant hit.
Rather than having squares filled with numbers, they're filled with things usually said by Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, as well as questions asked by journalists at the daily briefings. These include whenever someone says "Kia Ora Koutou Katoa", whenever a reporter asks about Personal Protective Equipment, or whenever the Prime Minister calls a journalist by their first name.
The woman who made the game told Newshub she has a lot of spare time on her hands due to alert level 4, like many Kiwis, hence why she decided to make the game.
"[I] just want to note that I love the work that Jacinda [Ardern] and Dr Bloomfield are doing," she said.
The post attracted hundreds of comments with some saying they were even keen to print it out and give it a crack.
