Coronavirus: Several backpackers who were in on near Bondi Beach in Australia confirmed to be infected with Covid-19




A number of backpackers who were recently in or near Bondi Beach in Australia have now tested positive for coronavirus.

The announcement comes after authorities were forced to close off the popular beach following the congregation of hundreds of people in recent days, despite government guidelines to avoid mass gatherings.

Medical authorities believe that the backpackers picked up the disease at two parties that were held at the beach a week ago. The parties were attended by dozens of people.

Australia has so far reported over 1,000 cases of Covid-19.
