NSW records 14 new cases, alerts issued for three flights

New South Wales has recorded 14 new cases of coronavirus, but officials know the source of all of them.

It comes as officials also issue an alert for three flights that arrived in Sydney in the past few days, after passengers on each of those flights tested positive.

One of the new cases is a returned traveller in quarantine, one is from Victoria.


Six of the new cases are linked to a funeral service at Bankstown, four are linked to the Thai Rock restaurant at Wetherill Park while one is connected to the Thai Rock restaurant in Potts Point.

A second Potts Point restaurant has also been forced to close after a staff member at The Apollo tested positive.

New South Wales Health has now urged anyone who was at The Apollo between July 23 and 25 or the Thai Rock at Potts Point between July 15 and 25 to self-isolate for 14 days and get tested.

Residents in the Potts Point area are also being advised to monitor for symptoms and get tested if symptoms develop.

NSW Health has also urged staff and patrons who went to Mounties in Mount Pritchard on July 23, 24 and 25 and the nearby Pritchard’s Hotel on July 23 to isolate for 14 days and get tested if ill after a patron tested positive.

Officials have also confirmed passengers on three flights have been diagnosed with the virus

They include Emirates flight EK414 that landed in Sydney from Dubai on Monday, Jetstar flight JQ506 from Melbourne that landed on Saturday, and Garuda Airways flight GA712 from Jakarta that arrived in Sydney last Wednesday.

Alerts have been issued to passengers who were seated close to the infected passengers.

NSW Health says most passengers would be in quarantine already.
