(ANSA) – SYDNEY, July 28 – Millions of Sydney residents will spend another month in confinement: Authorities announced this, spurring the decision as coronavirus infections continue to rise and vaccination rates drop.
Australia’s largest city was supposed to emerge from a five-week lockdown on July 30, but restrictions will remain in place until August 28, as the number of cases continues to rise.
“I am personally convinced by what we are asking people to do over the next four weeks because we want to keep our community safe and we want to make sure we can recover as quickly as possible,” NSW Premier Gladys said. .
The outbreak, which was in decline, returned to spread in mid-June from a group on an international flight.
So a fairly severe lockdown has been imposed again: people who live in the center will not be able to leave their neighbourhoods. Those who live alone will be allowed to create a “one bubble” with another person.
Berejiklian said police would step up efforts to ensure compliance with the measures, and urged Sydney residents to report those who break the rules.
But in Melbourne, the fifth lockdown has just ended.
