New Covid-19 Cases in New South Wales Cross Double Digits

The state of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia has reported an increase in the number of new positive cases of locally transmitted Covid-19 for the third day in a row. New cases of Covid-19 in the state of New South Wales are now in double digits.

UMMATIMES - This increase comes as authorities try to combat the Delta outbreak of a new variant of Covid-19, which is more easily transmitted. Reports on Thursday, June 24, 2021 stated that there were 11 new positive cases of Covid-19, which were transmitted locally. With this, there have been a total of more than 40 cases of coronavirus infection in New South Wales.

"Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, this has been perhaps the most terrifying period that the state of New South Wales has most wanted to go through," said New South Wales Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian.

New South Wales already has strict rules for the capital, Sydney, which is also Australia's largest city and home to a population of 25 million. Health authorities warn that transmission of the corona virus can occur even though there is not much contact with people who are already infected with Covid-19.

New South Wales authorities have so far resisted calls for a lockdown despite Australia's record of success in suppressing the number of coronavirus infections before quickly going into lockdown.

There have been 30,400 coronavirus cases in Australia since the Covid-19 pandemic began. While the number of deaths from the virus was 910 people.

According to Berejiklian, although the new Delta variant of Covid-19 is highly contagious, his party is quite confident with the current conditions. Western Australia's Prime Minister Mark McGowan urged the New South Wales authorities to impose a lockdown to destroy and kill the coronavirus.
