Three new NSW coronavirus cases, after record number of tests

New South Wales has conducted a record amount of coronavirus tests overnight, with just three new cases diagnosed.

Over 10,900 tests were carried out in the last 24 hour period to 8.00pm last night.

The three new cases have all come from known sources which is being celebrated as good news, in that there have been no new community transmission cases.


The Premier has quickly touched on the easing of restrictions, which will be outlined following National Cabinet’s meeting tomorrow.

She’s warned that restrictions likely won’t be further relaxed before Mothers’ Day this weekend.

“As we proceed through May and through June, there will be an easing of restrictions and that’s something all of us can look forward to.

“I suspect by the end of June, life will feel much more normal than it does now and even during May.

“And without wanting to be the bearer of bad news, I doubt that NSW will be in a position to implement anything before Mothers Day,” Premier Berejiklian said.

Though within the state, two adults and children can visit people in their homes.
