    COVID-19 NSW: Southwest Sydney residents urged to seek testing as more coronavirus found in sewage

    Calls for increased COVID testing in dozens of Sydney suburbs after traces found in sewage

    Traces of coronavirus have been detected in sewage in southwest Sydney again, prompting urgent calls for residents with even the mildest of symptoms to get tested.  

    On Tuesday, the government reported two new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in New South Wales.

    Both cases were linked to a previous cluster in Oran Park in southwest Sydney.

    But New South Wales Health urged more people to come forward for testing. 

    Fragments of the deadly respiratory virus were found in sewerage in Glenfield, also in the same region.  

    ‘Detection of the virus in sewage samples could reflect the presence of known cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in recent weeks in the area served by this sewage treatment plant,’ NSW Health said in a statement.

    ‘However, NSW Health is concerned there could be other active cases in the local community in people who have not been tested and who might incorrectly assume their symptoms are just a cold.’

    People in the following regions have been urged to seek testing if they develop the mildest of symptoms:

    • Airds, Ambarvale, Appin
    • Bardia, Blair Athol, Blairmount, Bow Bowing, Bradbury
    • Campbelltown, Casula, Claymore, 
    • Eagle Vale, Englorie Park, Eschol Park 
    • Glen Alpine, Glenfield
    • Ingleburn
    • Kearns
    • Leumeah
    • Macquarie Fields, Macquarie Links, Menangle Park, Minto
    • Raby, Rosemeadow, Ruse
    • St Andrews, St Helens Park
    • Varroville
    •  Woodbine  

    The Oran Park community cluster has now grown to 25, but the latest two cases identified on Tuesday were in isolation even before they tested positive.

    Ten of the new cases are returned travellers who are in hotel quarantine, bringing the total number of cases in the state to 4,209.

    Only 6,438 COVID-19 tests were done in the last 24 hours up to 8pm Monday night, a marked drop on previous days.

    On Sunday, 7,447 tests were conducted with 12,465 taken on Saturday.
