    Video has emerged showing what could be Sydney’s largest COVID-19 superspreader event.

    In the video Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall, who tested positive to COVID-19 after attending Christos pizza bar in Paddington on Monday, can be seen mingling inside the NSW Legislative Assembly on Tuesday, and in discussion with Heathcote Liberal MP Lee Evans before sitting down alongside ministers Matt Kean and Stuart Ayres for Question Time.

    Yesterday it was reported that MPs Trevor Khan, Steph Cooke and Ben Franklin had dinner with Adam Marshall at Paddington, and were all in isolation.

    Sources have told 7NEWS that Adam Marshall may not have been infectious when he was in the chamber and that investigations are continuing into when he potentially posed a risk to others.
