    Two cases of the new coronavirus strain have been identified in Australia’s New South Wales. They are among six new cases in people returning from overseas. Authorities stress that no one with this virus mutation is believed to be circulating in the community. Australia has closed its borders to all non-citizens since March in an effort to curb the spread of the disease.
