A total of 1340 people have officially contracted the virus since the first case – an unvaccinated airport limousine driver – was diagnosed on June 16.
Greater Sydney’s lockdown is scheduled to end at midnight on July 30, but Premier Gladys Berejiklian is not prepared to give a definitive end date until she sees the data over the next few days.
Berejiklian also said the increased risk posed by the Delta variant meant that children will likely need to be vaccinated.
“In previous strands we have not seen younger people get the virus in the way they are,” Berejiklian said.
