Gladys Berejiklian confirms Greater Sydney coronavirus lockdown will be extended by one week

The NSW government has confirmed a coronavirus lockdown imposed on millions of people in five regions will be extended by a week.

The state recorded 27 new local cases on Wednesday, from 45,000 COVID-19 tests.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian spent most of Tuesday locked in discussions with health experts to gather information on “what next week looks like”, ahead of a crisis cabinet meeting.

The lockdown for Greater Sydney, Wollongong, Shellharbour, Blue Mountains and the Central Coast, due to end on Friday, will be extended by another week to 11.59pm on 16 July.
