Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Sydney Extends Covid Lockdown Until End of September Amid Delta Spread” – below is their description.
Sydney’s two-month long lockdown will be extended until at least the end of September and masks will need to be worn outside as the Covid-19 delta variant outbreak in Australia’s most populous city worsens — and ensnares New Zealand.
New South Wales recorded 642 new cases on Friday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters. From Monday, outdoor mask-wearing will be mandatory — except when exercising — in all regions throughout the state, she said. A curfew will be placed on areas of western Sydney hardest hit by the outbreak.
Another four people had died from the virus, the state government said.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
