Sydney cluster grows as the state prepares for further restrictions to be announced and more exposure sites are announced across the harbour city
- New South Wales has recorded two new cases of coronavirus on Saturday
New South Wales has recorded two new coronavirus cases as Greater Sydney prepares for more restrictions to be announced in the wake of the growing cluster.
A woman aged in her 40s who lives in the Bondi Junction area has tested positive for the virus, who regularly walks through the Westfield shopping centre where an infected man visited on June 12 and 13.
‘We don’t know as yet what day is the likely transmission as she walks through there on most days or many days. It could well be the 12th or 13th [of June] and the other transmission occurred,’ Health Minister Brad Hazzard said in a press conference on Saturday morning.

An Illawarra man also tested positive who was at the same cafe at the time of the infected man – his result was discovered Friday.
‘We are asking people to be vigilant checking the NSW Health website,’ Dr Jeremy McAnulty said.
The news comes as NSW Health reveal they’ve found fragments of the virus in sewer readings in the Camellia North catchment – putting more than 100,000 residents on high-alert.
The sewer is from suburbs including Parramatta, Granville and Sydney Olympic Park.
