Harrowing images show the grim reality that Sydney’s CBD has woken up alone.
As Greater Sydney recorded 112 new positive cases on Monday, the streets of the CBD were all but deserted as the message to stay home appeared to have finally hit home.
At George St, light rail carriages ran with almost no one on them, while pedestrian hubs along the city’s main artery, such as the Queen Victoria Building and Haymarket, were a ghost town.
Only a handful of mask-wearing Sydneysiders – essential workers, construction staff and CBD residents – could be seen walking around.
Train carriages and stations were also abandoned in and around the city.
