Brisbane, Darwin, Perth and Sydney have all reported new cases of the highly contagious Delta variant, which first emerged in India and has spread in Australia after escaping from hotels used to quarantine returning travellers.

A 48-hour lockdown of Darwin and surrounding areas — due to end Tuesday — was extended to Friday after a cluster linked to an outback gold mine grew to seven cases.
According to latest reports today Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called a meeting of national leaders late Monday as his government faces a fresh round of criticism for a sluggish vaccine rollout and failing to improve the leaky hotel quarantine system.
