Three Children Rushed From Coronavirus Quarantine Hotel In Ambulance
Three young children, who were in hotel quarantine in Sydney, have reportedly been taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital by ambulance.
It is believed they were staying at the Hilton Hotel on George Street, which is being used to quarantine people who arrived in Sydney from abroad, and had shown symptoms of the disease.
They were transferred at about 11 pm Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, the first group of 288 Australians who were quarantined in a Sydney hotel to limit the spread of coronavirus will be allowed to leave and go home.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller confirmed the people who arrived in Australia on March 26 have undertaken the mandatory 14-day self-isolation and will leave on Wednesday morning.
All travellers will get a letter confirming their period of isolation and will undergo a final health check.
After Wednesday's operation, police will plan for further hotel departures with some 3000 Australian residents expected to come out of hotel isolation over the next week.
On Tuesday, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said social distancing rules to limit the spread of Covid-19 will stay in place until a vaccine is found.
NSW recorded another 49 cases on Tuesday, bringing the total confirmed cases to 2686.
And while the number of new cases in NSW continues to stabilise, authorities are still concerned about the 406 locally-acquired cases with an unknown source.
More to come.
