NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant has voiced concerns over new cases of COVID-19 in Kogarah and Hurstville.

Speaking at today's NSW COVID-19 update, Dr Chant said she had "quite significant concern" about cases in Hurstville and Kogarah because of the lack of "demonstrable link" between those infected, pointing to "missing links" in the chain of transmission.

"We are finding unlinked cases ... and that means there are chains of transmission we are yet to track and yet to break," she said.

It comes as the latest NSW Health data shows cases in the St George region remain stable at this time.
