Business confidence in Sydney takes a hit
As Greater Sydney and surrounding areas remain in lockdown until at least July 9, the harsh measures have impacted on business and consumer confidence, according to the weekly ANZ-Roy Morgan consumer confidence index.
Confidence in Sydney dropped 4.6 per cent, and was even worse in regional NSW, down 6.6 per cent.
The lockdown is estimated to cost the NSW economy $2 billion.
On Sunday, the Northern Territory went into lockdown, which has since been extended until Friday, while on Monday night Perth and the Peel region became the third Australian city to enter lockdown.
Queensland has not ruled out following suit.
