There’s a ‘feeling of optimism’ in Sydney ahead of reopening

Clinical psychiatrist Tanveer Ahmed says there is now a "real feeling" of optimism around Sydney as it moves closer to reopening.

"You can tell people are bursting," he told Sky News host Gary Hardgrave.

"They’re on the blocks ready for the gun to go.

"I’m feeling a lot of optimism locally, whether that’s the case around Australia I can’t say."
