Global News published this video item, entitled “Australia’s COVID-19 cases rise in New South Wales as residents support lockdown” – below is their description.

Australia’s New South Wales (NSW), the worst-hit state in the country’s latest COVID-19 outbreak, reported 22 new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases on Wednesday as four major cities endure a hard lockdown to contain the Delta variant of the virus.

Around one in two Australians are under stay-at-home orders. Sydney, the country’s largest city, is under a two-week lockdown until July 9, while Perth, Brisbane and Darwin are in snap lockdowns until later this week.

Tough restrictions, including mandatory masks and curbs on gatherings, have also been enforced in most other major cities.

The daily NSW case number was up slightly from the previous two days, but still below the peak of the current outbreak of 30 new cases reported on Sunday. All 22 were linked to prior cases.
