New South Wales has recorded six new cases of COVID-19 as Premier Gladys Berejiklian urges people to come forward for testing. “Five of those six are the household contacts of the man we identified yesterday. So five out of the six - the spouse and the children of the house of the one case we had yesterday - and the sixth person is a very close contact of them in very close proximity,” she said. “The cases are all very close to Berala and investigations are underway. We'll have the genomic testing this afternoon to confirm that they are part of that cluster. In the past 24 hour period 12,700 people came forward for testing, a decline on previous levels. “I can't stress enough of the importance of people coming forward and getting tested. All of us want to see those restrictions we have in place eased, all of us want to be confident we can go back to what we had before Christmas," she said. “That will only be possible if we get those high rates of testing to give our contact-tracers, to give our Health experts if confidence that we are on top of any unknown strains of the virus.” New South Wales has recorded six new cases of COVID-19 as Premier Gladys Berejiklian urges people to come forward for testing. “Five of those six are the household contacts of the man we identified yesterday.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - A cluster of new coronavirus cases has emerged in Australia's New South Wales State, health officials said on Sunday, just as the country appeared on the verge of snuffing out all community transmission. Health authorities were still investigating a mystery case in a man who tested positive on Friday in the western Sydney suburb of Berala. All six locally acquired cases registered on Sunday were close contacts of the man. Australia, which has managed the coronavirus better than many other nations through targeted lockdowns and high rates of testing and contact tracing, last week recorded a day of zero locally acquired cases, raising hopes that outbreaks in three states over the summer holidays had been brought under control. The latest outbreak shows how easily the virus can spread, New South Wales state leader Gladys Berejiklian told reporters in Sydney as she called for more people to come forward for testing. What is really important is to make sure that, given we are towards the tail end of this particular outbreak, that there have not been other superseding events and we want to keep it that way, Berejiklian said. Australia has a strict policy of two weeks in hotel quarantine for returned international travellers. The country has tightened procedures since the virus seeped into the community from a hotel security worker last May, sparking a second wave and a four month lockdown in the second biggest city of Melbourne. On Friday, three people on two charter flights tested positive on arrival in Melbourne, which will host the Australian Open tennis tournament next month, and among the people placed in hard hotel quarantine were 47 players, who are barred from leaving their rooms to practise. Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley on Sunday confirmed the year's first Grand Slam will go ahead from Feb. 8 despite anger from some of the players over the quarantine rule. Australia's new infections rose to 18, of which 12 involved returned travellers, health officials said, bringing the country's total to just over 28,700 cases and 909 deaths.
