NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has warned that Sydney’s COVID lockdown could be extended, if community cases are not lowered. New South Wales has reported a further 98 local cases of COVID from almost 76,000 tests.

However, 20 of those were active in the community throughout their infectious period. Premier Gladys Berejiklian said driving that number down to zero would be the key factor in lifting lockdown.
