According to him, the number of infected people will increase in the next two weeks, because, as he stated, no effective measures are being taken to stabilize the situation and limit the transmission of the virus.

Quarantine until mid-October

In the capital of Australia, the Canberra quarantine measure will be in force until mid-October. About 400.000 residents have already spent a month at home, after the discovery of a new hotbed of COVID-19 in the city. Local authorities want to limit the transmission of the virus and vaccinate as many people as possible. The new focus of the epidemic is limited, although it is a more contagious variant of the corona delta virus. 252 active cases and 276 cured were recorded. The vaccination campaign has accelerated in recent months, especially among the millions of people in the southeast of the country, where Sydney and Melbourne are the most populated cities.
