SYDNEY INFECTIONS DROP AMID RECORD TESTING FOR OUTBREAK
Sydney has recorded its fewest number of new coronavirus cases in several days, raising hopes the Australian city may contain a recent outbreak.
The city has seen 90 infections since the outbreak was detected in its Northern Beaches region last week.
On Tuesday, authorities praised a record 44,000 people for turning out to get tested in the previous day.
The nation is currently seeing almost no new cases outside Sydney.
That has prompted every state government outside New South Wales (NSW) to enact entry bans on travellers from the state’s capital.
Neighbouring Victoria reported one new infection on Tuesday – a traveller from Sydney who had entered quarantine.
