Ms Berejiklian said the vast majority of other patients across Australia were infected overseas or had been infected by a returning traveller.

She said: “What is occurring in Victoria has not yet occurred anywhere else in Australia. It’s a new part of the pandemic and, as such, it requires a new type of response.”

NSW police will close the Victorian border on Tuesday, but some flights and trains services would continue for travellers who are given permits and exemptions.
