New South Wales county authorities imposed a complete closure throughout Sydney and its suburbs for two weeks due to the spread of the mutated Delta from the most contagious Coronavirus.
The closure, in effect since midnight on Friday, will be applied in four districts, starting Saturday at 18:00 (8:00 GMT) in all parts of the largest Australian city, according to Provincial Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
General isolation is already in force for more than a million people in central Sydney and the eastern suburbs of the city due to the outbreak, but health authorities said they need to expand this after recording a greater number of Corona injuries.
Yesterday, the Australian authorities ordered the imposition of a stone on four neighborhoods in central Sydney in an attempt to curb the spread of the transgenic.
This week, 65 people tested positive for the coronavirus. All of these cases are related to a driver who was transporting airline crews from Cindy Airport to hotels designated for quarantine.
