    Southern leaders are pleading with locals to follow the lockdown rules and take the pandemic seriously


    Almost 120 of the country's 797 confirmed and probable cases have been in Otago and Southland -- the area covered by Southern DHB.

    They include some of the country's largest clusters of cases, in Queenstown and Bluff.
