An update on the lockdown on Australia’s largest city of Sydney.
- new cases reported for the previous 24 hours are 78.
Since the peak of 112 a little over a week ago, numbers daily:
- 89, 97, 65, 97, 111, 105, 98, 78
Such a result is unlikely to have the local lockdown ending soon but given Sydney’s approach, it’ll be enough to avoid further tightening.
Meanwhile … South Australia will go into lockdown from six o’clock (local time) tonight.
- 3 new cases in the preceding 24 hours
- 7-day lockdown at this stage
