UK Covid LIVE: Boris Johnson strikes cautious note in Freedom Day press conference amid pingdemic -Boris Johnson has delivered a coronavirus press conference as he self-isolates at Chequers on so-called Freedom Day.
L ES authorities announced Wednesday the curfew in the neighborhoods of Sydney most affected by the coronavirus, at the moment where the number of cases stabilizes and the vaccination rate progresses.
Nearly three months after the entry into force of the containment of the largest city of, this measure, which prohibited the outings between 21:00 to 5:00, will end on Wednesday.
This new news has been perceived by its inhabitants as a first step towards the end of the confinement.

War of words between Ray Hadley and Alan Jones over Sydney Covid rules
Jones has repeatedly criticised New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian during Sydney's coronavirus lockdown for enforcing strict public health orders to stop the spread of the virus. Last week, he used his Sky News segment to call for the pay of Australia's 'contemptible' politicians to be scrapped until they stopped implementing lockdowns. 'We are being run by an ignorant rabble who don't do any homework,' he said in another rant directed at Ms Berejiklian on Monday.
The Prime Minister of that State, Gladys Berejiklian, however, called for the inhabitants to remain vigilant and to respect the confinement in order to prevent the situation from deterring again.
Most Sydney residents are allowed to leave their home only to buy food, practice physical activity or follow medical treatment.

Schools, bars, restaurants and offices are closed since the end of June and the trips are not authorized beyond five kilometers.
Ms. Berejiklian had announced that many restrictions would be lifted when 70% of the inhabitants are entirely vaccinated during the month of October.
"We know it was difficult, but there are only a few weeks left before we reach 70% (people) received two doses," she said.
'Ridiculous' rule leaves Kyrgios stranded
Nick Kyrgios has been forced off court in his opening round match at Wimbledon midway through the fifth set.The pair will have to resume on day three of The Championships to complete their first round match. It's the second time this year they've gone to a fifth set, having also gone the distance in Melbourne in Feburary, with Kyrgios victorious on that occasion.
Only these will be affected by the lifting of measurements.
"It's very clear. If you are not vaccinated, you will not be able to go to the restaurant. You will not be able to go to a cafe," the premier said.
The prohibition against Australians to leave the country for 18 months must end in mid-December, which suggests a reopening of the borders and a resumption of international travel.
During most of the pandemic, Australia recorded a lowest contamination rate in the world with its "zero covid" strategy, consisting of strict closing of borders, a search for contacts and Intense screening campaigns.
The epidemic renewal due to the Variant Delta mid-June in Sydney has resulted in a change in strategy and greater accession of the population to vaccination against CVIV-19.
Ms. Berejiklian warned that with 20% of people still not vaccinated, the number of hospitalizations and deaths could flambé at the lifting of Sydney's confinement.

Dan Andrews UNLEASHES at Morrison's $1.5billion package for Sydney .
A $1.5billion-a fortnight relief package for Sydney prompted a scathing reply from Dan Andrews who claimed Victorians were 'sick and tired' of having to beg the federal government for support. But the government hit back saying Victoria received the same support for its most recent two week lockdown as NSW has had for the last fortnight, with the new policy also available to any state who experiences restrictions from now on.'Everyone in Australia believes that people in Sydney and NSW deserve every possible support as they battle a second wave and a long lockdown,' Mr Andrews said in a statement.
