SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australia on Thursday rushed to track down the source of new cases of COVID-19 after discovering a small group in Sydney’s largest city, as authorities urged residents to get tested if they showed any flu-like symptoms. .

Two new cases of the new Corona virus were found in the northern coastal suburbs of Sydney, a day after the city recorded three cases, thus ending nearly two weeks of no cases.

“We really want to get over this, we don’t want this to worry us in the last few days before Christmas, and I just urge the public to remain as vigilant as ever,” NSW Prime Minister Gladys said Prejiklian told reporters.

Australia has cautiously opened its internal borders and eased social distancing restrictions in recent weeks, after virtually no local cases were reported in all states and territories.

Australia has reported just over 28,000 cases of coronavirus and 908 deaths since the start of the pandemic. It estimates there are just over 50 active cases in the country, most of them from overseas travelers returning in hotel quarantine. (Prepared by Ringo José, edited by Richard Boleyn)
