New South Wales has reported another 210 COVID-19 cases.

The state's Health Minister, Brad Hazzard said the majority were in southwest and western Sydney, the Sydney Morning Herald reported

At least 21 were in the community while infectious, while the movements of another 120 are still being investigated. 

There were 105,963 tests done in the 24 hours to 8pm Friday. There were two overseas-acquired cases detected.

The total number of cases in what began as a cluster in Bondi in mid-June is now 3190.

Wastewater in South Windsor, where there are no known cases, has also tested positive for the virus.

"Everyone in these suburbs is asked to be particularly vigilant for the onset of symptoms that could signal COVID-19, and if they appear, to immediately be tested and isolate until a negative result is received," NSW Health said in a statement.

There are 198 people in hospital in NSW, Hazzard said, 53 in ICU (including six in their 20s) and 27 on ventilation. 

The announcement comes after Queensland reported six locally transmitted cases, putting parts of the state into lockdown.
