SOUTH AUSTRALIA LIFTS CONFINEMENT
The South Australian state government announced this Friday that it will advance the end of the strict six-day confinement that it had ordered to its more than 1.7 million inhabitants by the covid-19, after controlling the outbreak that was detected last weekend in the city of Adelaide.
South Australian Police Commissioner Grant Stevens stated at a press conference in Adelaide that “from midnight on Saturday we will be re-adopting a series of restrictions similar to the ones we imposed at the beginning of the week. “
In this way, strict confinement will end tomorrow, which began on Wednesday night and is considered the most severe tax in Australia at the moment, since it prevented the inhabitants of the state from exercising outdoors and taking their pets for walks.
The population of South Australia, which has a total of 553 cases and four deaths from the new coronavirus since the start of the pandemic, may reopen their businesses, albeit with limitations capacity, as well as attending funerals, celebrating weddings and religious events, among other activities.
