A state of emergency has been declared in Sydney, Australia.
The state of New South Wales declared a state of emergency on Friday to reduce the number of people infected with the coronavirus.
New South Wales Premier Gladys Berrigiclian said the decision to declare a state of emergency was made after most people had been infected with the corona virus since the outbreak began.
One person has died in the last 24 hours and 136 new cases have been reported across the state.
This number is said to be very high so far.
However, doctors and staff working in the health sector and those working in the emergency services are not allowed to go out of the house.
Berezklian has also urged all citizens of the state to manage vaccinations.
People have not been allowed to leave their homes in Sydney, which has been locked down for over a month. To reduce the number of infected people, the government has not allowed people in Bangkestown, Liverpool, Fairfield and Canterbury to leave their homes.
Shops are closed except for essentials, while click and collect, take away and home delivery services were in operation.
Since Monday, except for the most urgent maintenance work, sanitation services were also closed. Despite this, the epidemic has not abated and a state of emergency has to be declared.
