Australia's New South Wales (NSW) state Premier Gladys Berejiklian (pictured) announced that strict COVID-19 containment measures will be introduced in four areas of Sydney due to a rising number of new infections.

A new set of measures, meant to remain in place until July 2 in Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick, and Sydney City, will allow the residents in the designated areas to leave their homes for work, education, exercise, and essential shopping, Berejiklian explained.

NSW state Health Minister Brad Hazzard previously warned that an increase in infections can be expected due to the spread of the coronavirus' Delta variant.
