Delta coronavirus variant now ‘thoroughly spread’ in Sydney

Clinical psychiatrist and author Dr Tanveer Ahmed says the coronavirus is now “thoroughly spread” in Sydney despite the initial containment.

It comes as the top doctor in New South Wales has said the Delta variant of the virus has breached containment, according to a report from The Daily Telegraph.

Dr Ahmed told Sky News there is “a lot of unease” in Sydney amid the outbreak.

“The cases are higher than we would have hoped at this stage, they’re not coming down,” he said.
