Australia records 1,000 COVID 19 deaths
Australia has recorded its 1,000 deaths from coronavirus, as it battles to contain the outbreaks of Delta variant.
Due to its early success in controlling the virus, the country’s tally of 1,003 COVID deaths is lower than most other advanced nations.
However, Australia is currently experiencing its worst case numbers since the outbreak began. A recent outbreak of COVID 19 in Sydney has put Australia’s response strategy and health resources under strain.
New South Wales state – of which Sydney is capital – reported four new deaths and another daily record of 1,218 cases on Monday. Even though more people got vaccinated, authorities cautioned that death and hospitalization rates would rise in the month of October.

After outbreaks in Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra, more than half of Australia is on lockdown.
Longer lockdowns and a rapid increase in vaccines have fueled discussion over when states and the nation should reopen.
