In Sydney, 18 new cases of coronavirus have been reported. The Corona Delta transmission began in Sydney last mid-June with an international flight crew.
Meanwhile, the pace of vaccination against corona in the country is quite slow. About 13 percent of people have been vaccinated so far. This crisis has been created due to the shortage of Pfizer-Bioentech vaccine supply. The country is not using the vaccine because of doubts about the estrogen vaccine.
Note that the total population of Australia is two and a half crore. So far more than 33,000 people have been affected by the corona. 921 people died.
