(ANSA) – SYDNEY, 09 JUL – Tight locking is back in Sydney, Australia, where five million residents are not allowed to leave their homes “unless absolutely necessary”. This was announced by the Prime Minister of New South Wales, Gladys Perezglian, while a new record of epidemics (44 new cases in 24 hours) Delta variant is now out of control and a vaccine campaign continues very slowly across the continent with more than 10% of the population being vaccinated.
Sydney – recall the international media – is now locked in its third week and is now tightened with new rules: residents are prohibited from traveling more than 10 kilometers from their homes, outdoor exercise is limited to a maximum of two people and only one person can shop per family. No more than 10 people can attend the funeral.
Prejudice is trying to vaccinate New South Wales residents by following the rules, warning that the government is going through its worst time since the epidemic began. Sydney citizens hoped to get out of the locked state on July 17, but experts say the state government may have to extend this.
“Until we reach zero infections or close to zero – said the Prime Minister of the State – we cannot relax the restrictions”. (On the handle).
