Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update NSW Health Media Release


- Sponserd Ads -

NSW recorded no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.

There were three cases acquired overseas, bringing the total number of COVID-19 cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic to 4,907.

There were 7,809 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day’s total of 9,723.

Confirmed cases (incl. interstate residents in NSW health care facilities)4,907
Deaths (in NSW from confirmed cases)56
Total tests carried out4,598,640

Testing numbers remain low, which is a concern given that high rates of testing are an important tool in tracking the spread of the virus. With restrictions set to ease across Greater Sydney tomorrow, it is crucial that people maintain their vigilance.

Although NSW has now seen 11 days without a known locally acquired case of COVID-19, the virus may  still be circulating in the community. We previously have seen runs of no local cases only to see them remerge after several days.

NSW Health continues to urge people to come forward for testing if they have any symptoms that could signal COVID-19 – including a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, or fever – as this is the best way to detect and stop any possible spread of the virus.

Every person who comes forward for testing is playing an important role in helping to contain the spread of COVID-19.

There are more than 350 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest clinic visit or contact your GP.

NSW Health is treating 62 COVID-19 cases, none of whom are in intensive care. Most cases (95 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
