Fresh coronavirus cluster grows in NSW, with another positive test

Another coronavirus infection has been diagnosed in Sydney this afternoon, with the new cluster in the northern beaches growing to five.

The partner of an aged care worker has since returned a positive result, as authorities continue to test the surrounding suburbs.

There have now been six new cases this week, with a van driver who shuttles airline crew in Sydney also testing positive yesterday.


Authorities are still working to determine the cause of the outbreak.

It’s understood three of the new cases had recently visited an RSL in Avalon, which is currently believed to be the source of transmission.

But the missing link is yet to be found.
