Sydney, the largest city Australia, Began a two-week lockout this Sunday (27), due to an increase in cases of delta variant of the corona virus. 110 people have already been affected in the area, while an explosion in the northern city of Darwin has led to people being ordered to stay home for two days.
New South Wales Minister Gladys Periglian told a news conference in Sydney that the government expects the number of Govt-19 cases to increase in the coming days.
Australia is more successful at managing the epidemic than many advanced economies. Since the outbreak, there have been more than 30,450 cases in the country and 910 deaths from Govt-19. Closing the borders, the people decided on the rules of social distance, while at the same time the people are determined to fight the disease.
But the country has been facing increasing small explosions in recent months. They are so far through rapid contact tracking, isolation from thousands of people at once, or difficult locking.
Thirty new infections reported by Sydney on Sunday brought the number of delta variation cases linked to a cluster in the Pondy neighborhood to 110. Two more cases are under investigation.
The rapid increase in lawsuits and exposure sites has forced the government to impose a siege without hesitation, allowing people to leave their homes only for shopping, work, education, fitness and essential medical care.
