In Australia, nine foreign travelers have been diagnosed with Kovid-19 at a New South Wales hotel quarantine as authorities discover more virus marks in sewage, reports AAP.
There are 72 active coronovirus cases across the state in which health officials warn the public to be vigilant.
A spokeswoman on Sunday said, “With the weather heating up and people attending more social gatherings, NSW Health is calling on the community to maintain Kovid-safe behavior.”
“Although there have not been locally accrued cases in NSW in recent times, now is not the time to topple our guard.”
Members of the public are reminded to keep practicing physical disturbances and good hand hygiene, and if they feel unwell, get them tested and separated.
Locally acquired cases were not diagnosed in NSW in 24 hours on Saturday at 8 pm.
Authorities are urging testing for symptomatic people in parts of west and northwest Sydney after traces of coronovirus were found in the sewerage system.
NSW Health quoted a network as saying, “Around 180,000 people in the catchment carry sewage.”
On Thursday, samples from the wastewater network were found that serve parts of the suburbs including Leppington, Catherine Field, West Hoxton, Hoxton Park, Edmondson Park, Preston and Miller.
Traces were also found in a separate sewerage system, covering 120,000 people in an area covering Quakers Hill, Bella Vista, Kellyville, and Balkum Hills.
“The presence of chronic cases of Kovid-19 may be indicated when the virus is detected in sewage samples, NSW Health may be concerned in other active cases,” the statement said.
