Western Sydney has been identified as an area of great concern to health authorities, specifically the local government areas of Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Liverpool.

The Premier will consider tougher restrictions for residents in those areas if the situation isn’t brought under control.

City of Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour told Ben Fordham there shouldn’t be an “us and them” mentality.

“I think there needs to be a very compelling reason to single out our city … for harsher treatment considering that didn’t happen to the eastern suburbs.”
