NSW records ‘steady’ rise in COVID-19 cases

New South Wales has recorded a further jump in cases of community transmission today with 22 people testing positive.
A record number of people came forward to get tested with over 68,000 tests received in the last 24 hours.
It has also been revealed a young student nurse has tested positive to the virus working in several wards across two Sydney hospitals.
Eleven of today’s cases were in isolation for the entirety of their infectious period.
It comes as the Service NSW QR code will be mandatory at all workplaces and retail businesses from July 12.
“We are going to need to sustain those levels of testing if we are going to assure ourselves that we are not missing unrecognised chains of transmission,” Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said.
Ms Berejiklian said the while the rise in cases remains ‘steady’ fears of an explosion in case numbers had not yet “materialised”.
The state is currently the epicentre of Australia’s latest outbreak with 171 locally acquired cases reported since the beginning of the outbreak on June 16.
The total number of cases linked to the Bondi cluster now stands at 160.

One new case was linked to Great Ocean Foods in Marrickville with a total of 19 cases now linked to the venue.

Four were linked to the West Hoxton birthday party bringing the total number of cases associated with the event to 39.
Christos Pizza in Paddington has also recorded two new cases.
Four of today’s cases were linked to the Crossways with the venues now upgraded to a high-risk exposure site.
