A woman in her 80s died at a house in Pendle Hill this afternoon, and a man, also aged in his 80s, died at Campbelltown Hospital this morning.

NSW Health said these are the ninth and tenth COVID-19 related deaths linked to the city’s current outbreak.

In NSW, 66 people have died since the start of the pandemic.

There were 145 new local COVID-19 cases reported in NSW today from more than 98,000 tests.

South-west Sydney still remains the main area of concern for health authorities as the lockdown stretches into its fifth week.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian today said details about how the lockdown will proceed will be given in the coming days.

The lockdown was supposed to end on July 31 but this is unlikely given the recent case numbers.

Ms Berejiklian said expert advice would indicate which restrictions were having “the most effect” – indicating others could potentially be relaxed.

“Please be assured that our mission is to keep the community safe as possible, while allowing people to live as freely as possible,” she said.

Ms Berejiklian also strongly indicated that next week more targeted restrictions could be used in the state.

“Some settings might change,” she said.

“We might need to go harder in some areas and release some settings in others.”
