COVID Updates Live: NSW Health Authorities Closely Monitoring New Cases Before Lifting Lockdown Friday



“Four new cases were contracted by the community overnight. One of them was announced late yesterday. This is the woman who is staying in Tarragindi with her family and she has tested positive. She is close contact of one of the cases in the Greek community center. She tested positive. Now her child has tested positive. This is normal.

“Then the third case is a colleague of the man who traveled to Eumundi and he lives in Sinnamon Park. We speak to him this morning for more information. The fourth case is the partner of the man who has traveled to Eumundi, so that is to be expected.

“Most of the places he visited were the same as his partner’s around that area of ​​Sunshine Beach in the northern part of the Sunshine Coast in Eumundi. They are all closely related, the four cases, and we can resolve them and we will suggest additional locations after discussion with these people.

“The good news is that we found one area of ​​concern, which is that we know that three of our cases that we were having trouble linking all came up at the same time, so I’m just going to get that detail. This is the Greek cuisine of Zeus Street in Westfield Chermside.

“We know the case of Aroona, remember that gentleman in the southern part of the Sunshine Coast, the gentleman who went up to Eumundi and the Prince Charles Hospital employees all frequented this restaurant. We’re just working on all the details, but we think this is probably the transmission site that this happened.

“At this point we now have 23 cases linked to the Portuguese restaurant and the Greek community center and I have yet to find the exact link other than the genome sequence between these two clusters, but we are just doing a little more work there, but for everyone else we think we’ve found both the genome sequence link and the epi link.The only other we need a little more work on is this DFO worker.
