School virus cluster worsens Australian state infections

World | 11 Aug 2020 1:45 pm

Australia's New South Wales has recorded its highest daily number of coronavirus infections in almost four months, as the cluster linked to a school in Sydney's north-west continues to rise, ABC News reports.

There have been 22 new infections in the state, including eight linked to Tangara School for Girls in Cherrybrook.

The last figure this high was on April 16, with 29 cases.

Tangara School has now recorded 17 confirmed cases since the first infection was discovered in a student on Thursday.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said "at least a third" of today's cases are from the Tangara School cluster.

Yesterday, NSW Health said there were nine cases linked to the school.

Of the total cases, 11 students, four teachers and two social contacts of school community members have been linked to the outbreak.
