spread of COVID-19. "The immediate circuit breaker lockdown has been
introduced on the best of public health advice due to a fast-evolving situation
in Western Australia following a third COVID-19 positive case. The first
positive case 1022, already announced, is now confirmed to have the highly
infectious Delta strain through genome sequencing linked directly to the Sydney
outbreak. The second case 1023, linked to case 1022, has already been reported
and announced today. The third case 1024, linked to case 1022, has been
