Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been praised after "jumping online" for an impromptu Facebook Live with concerned New Zealanders about the coronavirus pandemic and nationwide lockdown.

Ardern took to social media last night for a 16-minute question session with Kiwis before the country's coronavirus threat level was officially raised to level four and the four-week lockdown was enforced.

She captioned the live stream as thought I’d jump online and answer a few questions as we all prepare to stay home for the next wee while. Join me if you’d like! Those who tuned in saw the Prime Minister in comfortable casual-wear as she spent time answering questions around the pandemic and New Zealand's response.
