So far, there are 36 cases linked to the so-called Bondi cluster that erupted in the city's east last week.

Crackdown brings resignations at embattled Hong Kong pro-democracy paper

  Crackdown brings resignations at embattled Hong Kong pro-democracy paper Hong Kong's embattled pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily has been hit by a wave of resignations as authorities push to silence the outspoken tabloid and staff mull whether to leave or stay until the bitter end. On late Monday afternoon, Apple Daily's 1,000-odd staff got the news they had long expected given Hong Kong's hardening political climate: the 26-year-old paper was on its last legs. The board had met that day and announced the paper was almost certainly going to close unless they found a way to unfreeze its assets, with a final decision to be made on Friday.

Cleaning products, hand sanitizer and toilet paper were all but impossible to find, and only recently have name-brand disinfectant wipes and sprays begun showing up in stores again , Well, brace yourself, because another product shortage is looming — and yes, it may very well become tough to find toilet paper again .

All but one of the new cases are linked to a known case or cluster.

NSW Health added several exposure sites including two cafes in Potts Point, two cafes in Alexandria and a health club in Bondi Junction to its list of venues of concern on Thursday evening and Friday morning.

Despite widespread speculation Sydney was on the brink of another lockdown, Ms Berejiklian held her nerve but flagged a police blitz to nab anyone defying the restrictions announced on Wednesday.

'Since the pandemic has started, this is perhaps the scariest period that NSW is going through,' she said on Thursday.

'It is a very contagious (Delta) variant but at the same time we are at this stage comfortable that the settings that are in place are the appropriate settings, but that is so long as everybody does the right thing.'
