Millions of Sydney residents will be under movement control until at least July 9, while the New South Wales state government announced more Covid-19 cases on Sunday.

An additional 30 cases were reported when authorities tightened restrictions and warned of potentially longer or wider restrictions to come.

NSW Health said 79 patients were now being treated for Covid-19. “One of them is in intensive care but not ventilated,” the state ministry said. “Most cases (94 percent) are treated in non-acute outpatient care, including returnees.”

People living in Sydney, as well as in Waverley, Randwick, the Gulf of Canada, Inner West, Bayside and Woollahri, will be allowed to leave their homes just to buy food or other necessary goods and services, medical care or compassionate needs, exercise outdoors in groups of 10 or less, or a basic job or education that cannot be done from home.

These additional cases concerned exposure locations outside the Sydney local government area, which were already locked. As a result, “health advice is evolving” and “if we need to take further action, we will immediately inform the community,” said Gladys Berejiklian, NSW’s prime minister.

“Don’t leave Sydney metropolitan under any circumstances,” she said.
