Canberra has registered a further 15 locally acquired coronavirus infections. Of the ACT cases reported Thursday, 11 are connected and five had been quarantined all the time while contagious. Canberra has 241 active cases five weeks after the ACT lockdown, originally scheduled for just seven days, was announced. It has been extended three times, most recently until October 15th. Support for companies jointly funded by the ACT and federal governments has also been expanded. Prime Minister Andrew Barr previously stated that the ACT would gradually begin to reopen in accordance with national vaccine thresholds of between 70 and 80 percent. These are expected to be reached between mid-October and early November. Canberra continues to lead the country on vaccinations, grafting just over half of the population aged 12 and older. The ACT government wants to protect itself against NSW, which on Thursday registered 1351 new local cases and 12 more deaths. Australian Associated Press
