While Spain is trying to keep the virus under control, New Zealand announced it has been completely eradicated.
New Zealand has eliminated transmission of the coronavirus and will lift all containment measures except for border curbs, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says, adding that she "did a little dance" upon hearing that the country had no active cases. https://t.co/VJfvXaKH4D pic.twitter.com/K1bGoVPHp9

It should be noted that New Zealand is an island country which makes it easier to contain a virus. Regardless, their milestone is one that Spain and even the US can look to for hope. COVID-19 can be eliminated.
