NSW records positive COVID case with an unknown source.
A new locally transmitted COVID-19 case has been recorded in Sydney's Bondi area, with the source of their infection unknown.
NSW Health has issued a new COVID-19 alert, with a list of venues attended by the positive case. Most of the venues are in Bondi Junction and Vaucluse, with another in North Ryde.
The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee will convene on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the case.
It comes as the NSW Health also investigates a potential hotel quarantine breach, after two cases in adjacent rooms returned identical viral sequencing results.
It's unclear how and where transmission occurred from a couple to another returned traveller who were all staying on the fourth floor of Sydney's Radisson Blu quarantine hotel.
Meanwhile, NSW Health says it administered a record 17,223 COVID-19 vaccines in the 24 hours to 8pm on Tuesday, including 6048 at the vaccination centre at Sydney Olympic Park.
The total number of COVID-19 vaccines administered in NSW is now 1,737,557.
Australia and UK finalise free trade deal.
Scott Morrison has hailed a free trade deal with the United Kingdom as the most comprehensive and ambitious in Australia's history.
The prime minister and his British counterpart Boris Johnson announced the deal on Tuesday after sealing an in-principle agreement over dinner overnight.
"I said we would wait for the right deal, and I think we've got the right deal between the UK and Australia," Mr Morrison told reporters outside 10 Downing Street.
