‘Idiotic’ Sydney protest could lock down all of NSW

Police arrested 63 people so far as thousands of anti-lockdown protesters marched through Sydney’s CBD in defiance of stay-at-home orders.
Medical Journal of Australia Editor Professor Nick Talley told Ben Fordham the protests could have been a super-spreading event.
“This was an idiotic thing to do.
“There were people … from outside of Greater Sydney at those protests.
“We might even risk outbreaks outside of Greater Sydney that really lead to the whole state locking down.”
