A Delta outbreak which began in June has produced nearly 3,000 infections and led to nine deaths.

Australian Defence Force soldiers will undergo training on the weekend before beginning unarmed patrols on Monday.

But many have questioned whether the military intervention is necessary, calling it heavy-handed.

The lockdown - in place until at least 28 August - bars people from leaving their home except for essential exercise, shopping, caregiving and other reasons.

Despite five weeks of lockdown, infections in the nation's largest city continue to spread. Officials recorded 170 new cases on Friday.


Soldiers will join police in virus hotspots to ensure people are following the rules, which include a 10km (6.2 miles) travel limit.

State Police Minister David Elliott said it would help because a small minority of Sydneysiders thought "the rules didn't apply to them".

Information provided by health officials indicates the virus is mainly spreading through permitted movement.

The Australian Lawyers Alliance, a civil rights group, called the deployment a "concerning use" of the army in a liberal democracy.

The outbreak has largely affected critical workers and large family groups in the city's poorer and ethnically diverse west and south-west suburbs. About two million people live there.

Critics say those areas have already faced "targeted" policing measures. They point out restrictions there are harsher than for the rest of Sydney.

"Our people are one of the poorest demographics, and as it is, they already feel picked on and marginalised," said Steve Christou, one local mayor.

"They can't afford to pay the mortgage, the rent, the food or work. Now to throw out the army to enforce lockdown on the streets is going to be a huge issue to these people," he told SBS.

Others have called for the government to increase its vaccine drive and support services for the affected communities.

Australia's rate of vaccination - 17% of the adult population - remains one of the lowest among OECD nations.

I agree. Trump can cheerlead for him all he wants, but let DeSantis take a swing at this thing.

At this point Dons just too polarizing IMO, DeSantis holds most of the same convictions without all the bombast that turns many people off

Every Republican magically becomes "too polarizing", "too extreme", etc..



That's been the playbook for a long, long time.

Yep.

Hell, the Democrats worshipped Trump right up until he told Hillary she should be in jail.

DeSantis is new Reagan. Biden is Carter. Trump is Nixon.

I donít think Trumps policies are extreme in the least, but his personality and working style can often leave much to be desired IMO

If he gets the nomination heís getting my vote, but Iím not confident heíll be victoriousÖ his age would be legit concern as well

Just seems like itís time for some younger blood without all the baggage

You don't seem to get it. It doesn't matter who the Republican candidate is. The playbook has been the same since before most Americans have been alive. Racist! Bigot! Anti-women! Too Extreme! It's page one of how the left takes on the right.


The idea that Trump is something different falls in the light of even the most cursory investigation into political history. The left even did it with Romney, for fuck's sake.


But this is the Australia thread, so I'll leave it at that.

I get your point COMPLETELY, JPB

Yes the dems/media will run the same scheme on DeSantisÖ but he doesnít have nearly as much baggage to point to and ďtrumpĒ up

And itís my opinion that Ronís more laid back personal style will help with independents and hyper moderates

The dems and media will never change, but we need every vote we can get
