The people of Sydney Australia get shut down because of 3 new COVID-19 deaths

Australia, like other former UK colonies and the UK itself, has gone batshit crazy over COVID-19. I thought the video in the tweet below was old until I did a search. This is ridiculous.

The NSW premier, Gladys Berejiklian, has announced stricter lockdown restrictions for greater Sydney, including residents in the Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Liverpool local government areas, as well as the Central Coast, Blue Mountains and Wollongong, are in place until 30 July.

As of Wednesday 21 July, lockdown restrictions also apply to the Blayney, Cabonne and Orange local government areas in the central west of the state.

The tighter lockdown is aimed at achieving zero new Covid cases who have been infectious in the community – something NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian has set as a requirement to easing restrictions.

They want to get to ZERO new COVID-19 cases? Thank God we don’t live upside down. Maybe that’s one of the problems on that side of the globe?
