Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales and home to a quarter of Australia’s 25 million people, has been hit hardest in a flurry of highly contagious Delta variant breakouts during the past two weeks.

 

State Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian announced 35 new cases, 29 of which had previous instances. That exceeded the 31 cases recorded a day earlier, pushing total outbreak illnesses to above 250.

 

“While the number of cases is rising, we see a larger proportion of those in isolation that we wish to see,” Berejiklian told a press conference.

 

“In instances, we haven’t observed a significant spike… (but) the next several days are important.”

Sydney’s experiencing a two-week lockdown. Berejiklian said it was too early to decide whether to extend the lockdown.

 

“Daily, health professionals advise me and my colleagues,” she added. “Obviously, I think we’ll be able to notify the community where things stand next week.”

 

Residents everywhere in the country experienced a taste of freedom as the weekend started after lockdowns in Western Australia, Northern Territory, and certain sections of Queensland state were lifted Friday night.

 

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced that a lockdown will be lifted later on Saturday as she revealed five new instances of COVID-19 in the state.

 

Lockdowns, quick contact tracking, and stringent social distance regulations have allowed Australia to control past outbreaks, but the fast-moving Delta strain has concerned officials in the midst of a slow countrywide vaccine push.
