New South Wales has registered 17 new cases of coronavirus and the first death in nearly three months.
An 83-year-old man died on Saturday morning after being linked to the Crossroads Hotel’s cluster of affairs, the NSW Department of Health revealed.
The total number of state affairs has now risen to 3,584.
Of the new cases, three are in hotel quarantine, one is from a returning Victoria resident, and two are linked to the Apollo restaurant.
Two other infections were associated with the Mounties Club at Mount Pritchard, and seven were from contacts with known cases.
It’s because the prominent Bavarian pub in Manly was forced to close for thorough cleaning after a customer tested positive for the deadly virus.

A patron had been in the German pub on July 24 and will be closed on Saturday morning to receive a thorough cleaning.
The site will reopen at noon, and NSW Health advises all people at the site on the afternoon of July 24 to check for symptoms.
The Bavarian provided the authorities with a list of guests on that date.
The Harpoon & Hotel Harry in Surry Hills, Matinee Coffee in Marrickville and Tan Viet in Cabramatta are among the other locations needed for thorough cleaning after recent patronage by COVID positive people.
There are now 98 cases associated with the Thai Rock restaurant in Wetherill Park and 57 cases associated with the Crossroads Hotel in Casula.

Five cases have also been associated with Mounties in Mount Pritchard, and 24 cases have been associated with the Potts Point cluster.
NSW Health has announced that anyone visiting the Mounties on July 20 between 12:01 PM – 2:30 PM, July 21 between 12:15 PM – 5:30 PM, and 8:00 PM – 12:30 PM and 10:30 PM, and July 22 and July 22 must immediately isolate for two weeks, even if they test negative.
“Anyone who has visited the club in the following times should be isolated and tested regardless of the symptoms and remain isolated for 14 days even if they test negative. If symptoms develop, you will be retested, “said NSW Health.
Seven new infections from the past week could not be linked to known cases.
These unlinked cases were in two people from South West Australia, two in West Sydney, two in South West Sydney and Sydney and one in Local Health Districts.
