Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian made compulsory masks and announced several other measures, as Sydney’s coronavirus increased by 7.
Australia’s most populous country of New South Wales on Saturday made compulsory masks and added new limits as its coronavirus collection increased by seven, while neighboring Victoria recorded 10 new cases found in the country at COVID-19.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian banned dancing and singing in nightclubs while holding numbers at gyms, weddings, funerals and places of worship.
However, the five-day cricket test match between Australia and India, scheduled to start on Thursday, will continue to be attended by 50% people.
“We put health and safety first and foremost, but we also need to think about welfare and jobs and the economy,” Berejiklian told reporters in Sydney.
“And that’s why by putting these methods and settings in place we hope we can continue to expand and promote economic activity, give confidence in businesses and jobs, but also, of course, keep the virus alive.”
NSW, which has about 200 active cases in COVID-19, will be fined A $ 200 ($ 154) for not wearing a mask with a law that will be enforced from Monday.
Victoria, now with 29 active cases, this week made the face stronger nationwide as the rallies were closed and the border closed at NSW, causing long delays at border checkpoints on New Year’s Day.
Officials on Saturday say genomic sequences have shown that the Victoria outbreak is directly linked to the NSW group, which confirms the decision to close the borders.
The people of Victoria have a lot at stake here, ”said Victoria Health Minister Martin Foley.
South Australia has recorded another day of zero cases and Tasmania, which does not have COVID free, restricts visitors from certain parts of Victoria. The people of Queensland are being urged to review travel plans to NSW and Victoria.
Australia has reported more than 28,450 cases of COVID-19 and 909 deaths since the outbreak began.
