Coronavirus testing reveals four new cases in NSW

Four new cases of COVID-19 have been detected in NSW out of more than 7000 tests carried out on Sunday.

One of those was a locally acquired case linked to the Oran Park community cluster - a household contact of a previously reported case.

To date there are 23 cases linked to this cluster.

The other three cases are overseas travellers in hotel quarantine.

This brings the total number of cases in NSW to 4197.

In the 24 hours to 8pm on Sunday, 7447 tests were reported, down from 12,465 for the previous 24 hours.

"While it is not unusual for weekend testing numbers to be lower, if we are to ensure NSW continues to detect cases as soon as possible and prevent onward transmission, it is vital that members of the community continue to come forward for testing," a NSW Health spokesperson said.

"NSW Health continues to appeal to the community to be tested right away if anyone has even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could signal COVID-19."
