Australia to close pubs and restaurants

https://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-51994675?at_custom4=99E65604-6C27-11EA-8F58-FDC6C28169F1

Australia is going to close pubs, clubs, cinemas, casinos, nightclubs and places of worship from Monday, with cafes and restaurants having to switch to takeaway only.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the measures after a national cabinet meeting.

Home delivery services will continue running and supermarkets will remain open.

Schools are not being closed nationwide but some states have suggested they might do so.

The number of confirmed cases has risen sharply in Australia in recent days, reaching 1,315.

Australia's had a god-awful 6 months.

1. Beaches too, Australia's Bondi Beach closed after crowds defy coronavirus rules

MELBOURNE: Australian officials closed Sydney's iconic Bondi Beach on Saturday after thousands of people flocked there in recent days, defying social distancing orders to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, amid an unusually warm autumn spell.

Health Minister Greg Hunt said the crowds on the country's most famous strip of sand were "unacceptable" as he reported the number of infections across Australia had risen sharply.
