Australia Covid live news update: NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian announces 50 new coronavirus cases amid fears of extended Sydney lockdown

Globally, we will be living with Covid-19 for many years – probably decades to come. However, the case that it is not yet time to “live with the virus” in NSW and Australia is compelling.

With vaccine coverage at its current levels in Sydney, a rapid spread of the virus would be inevitable if we changed course now and would bring with it the risk of our hospital system being overwhelmed.
