New COVID cases in NSW today revealed as cluster expands after household visitor restrictions

A glimmer of hope has hit New South Wales’ coronavirus response after a record number of test results showed limited spread of the virus.

Fifteen new coronavirus cases were reported to 8pm on Sunday night.

That came from more than 38,000 tests, a single-day high for NSW.

Equally promising, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said, was that all 15 cases were linked to the Avalon cluster.

It brings that cluster to at least 83 cases with several other cases also reported in the Northern Beaches LGA.

“We do have, I believe, one of the best if not the best contact tracing team on the planet,” Berejiklian said.

She did warn, however, that the new cases had visited several venues across Sydney and renewed a call against complacency.

“We know what the high-risk areas of transmission are and we ask people to respond accordingly.”

“Don’t think that you’re immune.

“This can affect any of us, and we know from the cases not just in the last few days, but previously, how absolutely contagious this virus is.”

This is a developing story. More to come.
