?? Covid update - Tuesday ??
?? For the 19th consecutive day there were no new cases in the Hunter-New England region.
?? Statewide, just three new cases have been reported over the past 24 hours.
?? Of those three, one is a returned traveller from overseas who went straight into hotel quarantine. The other two are close contacts of previously reported cases and were isolating during their infectious period.
?? There were just 148 new cases recorded in Victoria over the past 24 hours and sadly a further 8 deaths.
?? Australia's death toll now stands at 525, including 54 in NSW and 438 in Victoria.
?? The number of active cases in NSW has dropped under 200 and now stands at 196. The number of active cases in Victoria now stands at 3651.
?? As I've mentioned previously, the major concern for health authorities remains the number of cases where no source has been confirmed. There are currently 20 cases in NSW with no known source, which means the virus is still circulating in the community undetected and could pop up anywhere in a new cluster.
?? Please continue to stay safe, vigilant, maintain the social distancing, and wear a mask if you have to visit places where social distancing is difficult.
?? If you notice any symptoms, please self-isolate and get tested as soon as possible.
