Health authorities in NSW have confirmed four new coronavirus infections in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.

One of the infections is a returned traveller in hotel quarantine.

The other three cases are all healthcare workers at Concord Hospital and Liverpool Hospital.

There were 10,129 tests recorded yesterday, down substantially from the previous day’s total of more than 38,500.

NSW Health said Saturday’s high number of tests were the result of a private laboratory failing to report a prior period’s testing numbers to the Government.

Some 18,956 swabs were added to NSW’s testing numbers from August 20 to September 2, all of which were negative, a spokesperson added.

More to come.
