Breaking: The Sydney lockdown will be extended to the 16th of July, government sources said.

6 million people in the greater Sydney area are likely to face at least one more week of current restrictions, reporting in multiple outlets said.

The NSW government was holding emergency meetings, as cases of the delta variant increase and multiple people are still catching and spreading out of quarantine.

The NSW government will outline details Wednesday morning press conference.

Details may include plans to home school children and possible harder lockdown mesures to ensure no more community spread.

The Premier will hold a press conference late morning Wednesday.
