New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced a plan to trial home quarantine in the state in a matter of weeks

Berejiklian wants to open Sydney to more travellers overseas once the state meets its vaccine targets.

“One of the things that we expect to occur at 80 per cent of all those is to consider our international borders,” she said.

“That’s Aussies returning home through Sydney Airport, but also our citizens having the opportunity to go overseas when previously they weren’t able to,” she told media.

NSW Tourism Minister Stuart Ayres says the home quarantine trial is an “important step” in reopening the state to the rest of the world.

“We’re going to at the end of this month, the trial that changes the way we do quarantine.

Ayres said the trial will begin with approximately 175 people, that will be broken across two cohorts.

“We have been working with Qantas aircrew and staff for a number of months now and will include some of those people in this trial to conduct their quarantine at home.”

Meanwhile, in Europe, more than 300,000 cases were passed to investigators between March and May, according to figures seen by the BBC.

The government was not able to say how many of these were found to have broken the rules or could not be traced.
