Following the reopening, staff at the fast-food giant took to Facebook to say hi to customers and welcome them back.

The post read: "Oh we have missed you! Great to see you all this morning enjoying your Maccas meal! What did you miss the most?"

After seeing cars back up right down the road, the chain posted a photo of the mammoth queue on social media, with the caption: "Thanks for everyone's patience today and the hard work of our teams around the country.

"If you don't fancy the queues today, the good news is we're ready to see you tomorrow, or the next day, or the next."

She said her government's Level Four restrictions have helped stop community transmissions of the virus and curtailed the threat to society.

The number of cases in New Zealand has jumped only by single digits over the past few days and health experts are cautiously optimistic.

Ms Ardern said during a press conference that it appears her country is through the worst of the pandemic.

"Elimination means we may well reach zero but we may well then have small numbers of cases coming up again," she said.

"That doesn't mean we have failed, it just means that we are in the position to have that zero tolerance approach to have a very aggressive management of those cases and keep those numbers low and fading out again."

New Zealand has recorded 1,474 cases of coronavirus, with 19 people having sadly died, while 1,229 have recovered.

Ms Ardern praised New Zealanders for being understanding during this difficult time.

"It's been nearly five weeks living and working in ways that just two months ago would have been impossible. But we did. And we have done it together," she said.
