Canberra enters snap lockdown as Sydney tightens COVID curbs

Aljazeera says Australia’s capital Canberra has announced a snap one-week lockdown after reporting its first locally acquired case of COVID-19 in more than a year.

The restrictions, which will take effect on Thursday evening, come as Australia battles to control the highly infectious Delta strain of the coronavirus. More than 10 million people in the country’s biggest cities, Melbourne and Sydney, are already under hard lockdowns.

Andrew Barr, the chief minister of the Australian Capital Territory, which encompasses Canberra, said the source of the positive case in the city was not yet clear.
