NSW records two new coronavirus cases after 9,700 tests

New South Wales is once again pleased with their daily diagnosis rate, recording just two new cases.

The state’s total of confirmed cases now stands at 3082, with majority of those recovered.

The Premier said one of the new cases is actually from Melbourne, while the other relates to a student at River View School, which was uncovered yesterday.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian says two new cases is still great news for the state, as it prepares to further ease restrictions around regional travel next month.

“We had 9,700 people tested overnight, a good result which means that people are taking our advice to say that even if you have the mildest symptom it’s really, really important to come forward and get tested, especially as restrictions are easing, more people are out and about and it’s so important we identify anybody who has the virus. 

“Out of that batch of 9,700 or so tests, there were only two cases identified,” the Premier said.

The state government has revealed it’s now planning how international students could be brought back.

However, only early discussions are underway at the moment.
