New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Monday that she was delaying the country's parliamentary elections by four weeks after the reemergence of COVID-19 in the country. The World's Sarah Birnbaum reports on how Ardern's decision is different from President Donald Trump's suggestion last month to delay the American elections.
