A child at the nearby Tomaree School was also reportedly infected. It is not known if and how things are related.

Earlier on Wednesday, an employee of a nursing home in Sydney tested positive for coronavirus.

The Ashfield Baptist Homes employee, a senior citizen care worker in inner Sydney, had dinner at the Thai Rock Restaurant in Wetherill Park, which has since been linked to 37 cases.

Other employees and residents of the facility are now isolated and are being tested for the deadly respiratory infection, New South Wales Health said in a statement.

“The risk to other staff and residents is considered very low as the staff member wore masks, gloves and coats while working with residents and did not work during symptomatic treatment,” the statement said.

Ashfield Baptist Homes has since been closed to the public pending test results.

It’s because Mary-Louise McLaws, an epidemiologist and advisor to the World Health Organization, admitted that the clock is “ticking” the New South Wales authorities to get the virus under control.

“It’s hard work,” she said on ABC on Wednesday.

“And that’s why I think it would help to prevent the spread if everyone wore a mask in public until they got all those potentially exposed people under control and kept them isolated.”

Prior to the outbreak at the Crossroads Hotel, which first started when a Melbourne traveler dined at the venue, New South Wales was about to “eliminate” the virus.

“It had so few numbers outside of the quarantined hotel for returning travelers that we did very well. I think NSW can get back to that level, but it will be challenging from a different perspective than Melbourne, ”she said.

Dr. Stephen Parnis told A Current Affair that the virus could easily get out of control in Australia.

“It’s always true that these things can spread,” he said.

“The concern is that NSW could now be where Melbourne was four, five, six weeks ago.”

On Tuesday, 16 new COVID-19 cases were registered in the state.

One of the cases related to hotel quarantine, three to the Crossroads Hotel in Casula and eleven to the Thai Rock restaurant in Wetherill Park.

NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said her state is facing the most “critical time” since the first block in March.

She said it was reassuring that no new outbreaks of coronavirus emerged across the state, but that she was still concerned about community transmission.

“The next few weeks will be the most critical in NSW since closing earlier in March and April,” she said.

“We are not out of the woods yet, on the contrary … We are somewhat concerned about the degree of community transfer.”

A stern warning has been issued against travel to Sydney as the city’s coronavirus continues to grow.

Residents of Newcastle were told by local health authorities to reconsider their travel plans.

Public health doctor David Durrheim said the Sydney outbreaks were “worrying” and that non-residents should stay away.

There are usually many journeys between the two cities on the east coast, just 170 km apart.

“We highly recommend everyone from the Hunter New England region to stay home rather than visit Sydney at this stage unless absolutely necessary.

“This virus, if you give it half a chance, can spread very quickly and even from the asymptomatic,” he said.

The 16 cases announced on Wednesday mark seven consecutive days of daily double-digit infections in NSW.

While Prime Minister Gladys Berejikilan has not yet imposed travel bans for regional areas in NSW, he said people should be “extra careful” when moving around the state.

“There is no safe zone,” she said.

“My strongest message is that we are all alert.

“We should all follow our behavior. We all need to think about where we travel. We all need to think about avoiding crowds and those high-risk activities, especially on weekends. ‘

The recent community transfer in the state can be traced back to Victoria, where figures skyrocketed to a record 484 cases on Wednesday.

New numbers showed that 90 percent of patients were unable to isolate between getting sick and being tested, and 53 percent failed to isolate themselves pending the outcome.

The state has experienced outbreaks in slaughterhouses, old people’s homes, logistics companies and law firms.
