The coronavirus lockdown in the capital of Australia's most populous state of New South Wales is likely to be extended, The New York Times reported citing officials.

The state authorities have said that the measures in the city of Sydney, which were reinstated over two weeks ago, may need to remain in order to slow the spread of the new Delta variant of coronavirus.

Sydney has confirmed 112 new cases on Monday, taking its total of 678 since the outbreak started in June.
