The New South Wales Department of Health (NSW Health) reports three cases of novel coronavirus (2019-NoCv) today. Two other cases are under investigation.


Two of the men have been to Wuhan, China. The remaining case, also a man, has had direct contact with a person who has been diagnosed with the new coronavirus infection in Wuhan during his stay in China.

All three patients are now in isolation at the New South Wales Hospital.

NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant said from these cases it can be seen that travelers returning to NSW must be fully aware of the symptoms of the new coronavirus infection.

“Everyone exhibiting symptoms should have basic health protection-use a tissue or raise their elbows to block them when coughing or sneezing, and then wash their hands thoroughly.”

Dr. Chante said that in order to protect the safety of family and friends, don’t be afraid if symptoms occur, contact the doctor immediately.
