New South Wales says COVID-19 cases at 3-day low

Australia's most populous state reported the lowest one-day increase in new COVID-19 cases in three days on Monday.
The news has raised hopes that authorities may have managed to contain an outbreak in Sydney's northern suburbs on the beach, where 250,000 people are on the third day of a five-day lockdown.
15 new cases were reported on Monday, up from 36 the previous day.
However, it was found that more than 80 locations, including cafes and gyms across Sydney, have been visited by people who have since tested positive.
New South Wales Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said the restrictions may have to stay in place at Christmas:
"We have to monitor and make one last call on Wednesday about what Christmas and the next few days are going to be like. And I guess people have plans. I mean my family is no different from anyone else's. All of us, I think we are empathize with each other. "
The government also confirmed that it had discovered cases in returning British travelers of the fast-spreading new strain of coronavirus in the UK.
But that the Sydney cluster tribe didn't have the mutations.
The original source of this cluster is still unknown, but tests show the strain is almost identical to that of a woman who came to Sydney from the United States earlier this month.
Meanwhile, other Australian states and territories have moved quickly to close their borders to all of Sydney's 5 million residents.
Dozens of domestic flights scheduled to leave the city on Monday have been canceled.
And states have begun operating checkpoints along the New South Wales border.
