Five new coronavirus cases in NSW, Premier Gladys Berejiklian confirms as stadium restrictions eased

Health authorities in NSW have confirmed five new coronavirus infections in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.

Two of them are returned travellers in hotel quarantine.

Two of them are locally acquired and linked to known cases or clusters, including one at Concord Hospital in Sydney’s inner west.

NSW chief health officer Kerry Chant confirmed there were now 21 cases in the Liverpool and Concord hospitals cluster, including eight staff.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the other infection was someone in a border community and could be a false positive.

“The second test they had was negative so that’s still being evaluated,” she said.

Ms Berejiklian said there was “no doubt” easing the border restrictions brought risk to her state.
