Coronavirus: Map shows COVID-19 cases have spread across Sydney as Victoria crisis deepens

A new hotspot map reveals how coronavirus has spread across Sydney after Melbourne’s second wave of infections jumped the border.  

NSW recorded 13 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, following an outbreak of cases at the Crossroads Hotel in Casula, in the city’s south-west.

The ‘patient zero’ of the hotel outbreak has been identified as a Melbourne freight company employee who attended the venue on July 3.

NSW Health said there are now 50 cases associated with the Crossroads Hotel cluster and 26 cases linked to the Thai Rock restaurant at Wetherill Park. 

Victoria reported 374 new coronavirus infections on Wednesday.

According to NSW Health there were 90 active cases in the state as of Tuesday.  

Sydney’s inner west, eastern suburbs and northern beaches have so far remained unscathed.    

Despite the rising cases, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Tuesday said she wouldn’t yet follow Victoria’s lead by enforcing mask use in public, but urged people wear them when social distancing was impossible.  

‘What NSW Health and myself are worried about most at this moment in time is what people are doing when they’re entering hospitality venues … you can’t wear a mask when you’re having a meal,’ Ms Berejiklian told 2GB radio.

‘That’s where the biggest risk is at the moment, indoor events.

‘The health advice to date has served NSW extremely well and it’s not for politicians to make this stuff up as we go.’ 

Three women have died of coronavirus in Victoria as the state continues to grapple with 3,147 active infections.  

Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed the women aged in their 80s, 90s and 100s died overnight, bringing the number of deaths in the state to 42 and the national toll to 126.

One of the women was an aged care resident.

There are 174 people in hospital, 36 of whom are receiving intensive care.

‘It’s always challenging to analyse any one day’s results, you’d like to see numbers coming down,’ Mr Andrews told reporters on Tuesday.

‘At the end of the day, we’re not seeing the doubling and doubling again.

‘So what that says to me, and I’m sure the chief health officer can speak to this in more detail, is that the sorts of measures we have put in place are having a direct impact.’

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said community transmission did appear to be heading down.

‘We have seen some stabilisation in some postcodes especially the postcodes where there have been restrictions for a long period of time,’ Professor Sutton told reporters.

‘That’s encouraging.

‘There are other postcodes where the restrictions for stage three have been in place for almost two weeks, but that’s not as long as the some of the other postcodes are destabilising, so I’m still hopeful that we can see some levelling off in decreasing numbers in those areas.’
