Coronavirus outbreak: Australians crowd Bondi Beach despite restrictions, social distancing
Despite restrictions on outdoor gatherings due to the spread of coronavirus, thousands of Australians hit the world-famous Bondi Beach on Friday to bask in summer-like temperatures as the "last hurrah" before social restrictions are increased amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The country of 25 million people has seen only seven deaths from the virus but its case numbers have jumped to almost 800 in recent days, with New South Wales state reporting its biggest daily rise of 75 on Friday.
Australians have been encouraged to maintain a one and a half metre social distance from one another, while outdoor gatherings of more than 500 have been restricted.
