New coronavirus case numbers jump up in NSW

There’s been a bit of a spike in new coronavirus cases in New South Wales, with 11 people diagnosed overnight.

That’s despite an on-par testing number, with 5,400 tests conducted in the 24 hour period to 8.00pm.

Just one of those cases is from an unknown source, with the other ten from known clusters or contacts of confirmed cases.


It comes after just five cases were diagnosed the day before, with over 4,000 tests carried out.

Health Authorities are still urging anyone and everyone to come forward for testing, if they have any sort of potential coronavirus symptom.

They’re hoping to be testing at least 8,000 people a day.

Two of today’s new cases were diagnosed at the Anglicare Newmarch aged care facility, which has also seen four deaths.
