In the last four weeks, more than 800 cases of coronavirus have been recorded in NSW.
Initially, the majority of cases were concentrated in Sydney’s east, before the virus spread further west and into regional NSW.
While an increasing number of cases have been recorded in the city’s south west in the last week, cases have been seen across Greater Sydney.
A total of 864 cases have been recorded since the outbreak began in Bondi on June 16, after another 97 cases were confirmed on Wednesday.
Greater Sydney’s lockdown, which includes the Blue Mountains, Wollongong, Shellharbour and Central Coast, has been extended by at least two weeks.
The only local government areas in the lockdown region that have not yet seen a case of COVID are Lane Cove, Mosman, Blue Mountains and Shellharbour.
There are currently 785 active locally acquired cases in NSW.
Of those, 71 are being treated in hospital, with 20 people in intensive care, including four who require ventilation.

Greater Sydney has been in lockdown since June 26, with residents given only four reasons to leave their home.
The stay-at-home order, which applies to Sydney, as well as the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour, will extend until at least July 30.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the situation will be re-assessed in two weeks and a further announcement will be made then on the future of the lockdown.
“I want to thank the community for your patience,” the premier said on Wednesday.
“We are all in this together, because no matter where we live or what our circumstances, the virus could come to us.
“We don’t know how people are moving around, we don’t know exactly what contact people have had.
“That’s why it’s important for all of us to stay at home unless we absolutely have to leave the house and for all of us to follow the health advice.”
For the lockdown to end, Berejiklian said the number of new cases that have been infectious in the community needs to be as close to zero as possible.
The number of people moving about also needs to come down, Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant added.
