SYDNEY — Australian authorities will open a pop-up coronavirus testing clinic next to Sydney’s Bondi Beach on Wednesday as health workers try to contain clusters of infections across the country.
While strict lock-down measures are now in place in Australia, outbreaks of the disease have been detected in some communities, including Bondi, which made headlines in March when thousands of people were seen ignoring social distancing rules at its world-famous beach.
South Australia’s Barossa Valley wine-region has closed schools and facilities this week due to a localized outbreak, while six baggage-handlers working at the state’s Adelaide airport have also tested positive to COVID-19.
“Bondi is one of those places where we are seeing local transmission, and we have seen cases among backpackers in recent days,” New South Wales Health director Jeremy McAnulty said in Sydney on Wednesday.
The pop-up clinics are designed to ramp up testing in a dedicated area to help authorities contain the spread of the disease.
