Westfield put on alert after spike in mystery coronavirus infections hits Sydney as New South Wales records another 12 cases – and the worrying CBD cluster grows yet again. Five of NSW 12 cases are linked to known clusters including three in Sydney CBD. NSW Health are treating 86 cases with six in

New South Wales has recorded another 12 new coronavirus cases, as clusters related to popular pubs and restaurants continue to grow. New South Wales recorded another 12 new coronavirus cases on Thursday. Ten were locally acquired linked to known cases, two are under investigation.

Health authorities on Wednesday said NSW had entered a critical period in its fight against coronavirus, with concerns about low COVID-19 testing rates, undetected cases and people dropping their guard as the festive season approaches.

Test numbers have dropped significantly in recent weeks, with 14,230 coronavirus tests done in the 24 hour reporting period.

'As we go into Christmas we know that people are going to be welcoming people into their homes ... and household celebrations (and that will) present challenges for COVID transmission,' Chief Medical Officer Kerry Chant said.

Despite low case numbers NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian urged people not to become complacent.

'We want to make sure we get on top of this before we get into a season where people are more mobile and obviously in closer contact with each other,' she said.

'It's really difficult not to let your guard down because it's easy to think that we're immune and the case numbers are low ... (but) the virus is as contagious as ever, as dangerous as ever and it remains undetected in the community.'

She urged all businesses to get the QR code to electronically track any visitors to their venue ahead of the Christmas season.

NSW Health is treating 75 COVID-19 cases, with one patient being ventilated in intensive care.

Earlier on Wednesday, people in west, south west and north west Sydney were urged to monitor for symptoms after detection of the virus in sewage samples could mean the presence of known cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in recent weeks.

There are guidelines on the NSW Health website on how to participate safely in Halloween on Saturday, including using wrapped lollies, mask-wearing and maintaining social distancing.
