Covid update - Thursday
24th September 2020
GREAT NEWS today: NSW has recorded zero community transmission for the THIRD day in a row. There was just one new case recorded in the State over the past 24 hours and that was a returned traveller who was already in hotel quarantine. Here's hoping that trend continues.
Obviously, there were no new cases in the Hunter-New England region over the past 24 hours - that's 48 consecutive days - and there are ZERO active cases currently in the Hunter-New England region.
There were just 12 new cases reported in Victoria over the past 24 hours and 2 more deaths. No new cases in QLD.
Australia's death toll stands at 861, with the NSW toll still at 55 and Victoria's 773.
The number of active cases in NSW is down to 115. There are 532 active cases in Victoria (down 22) and just 5 in Queensland (steady).
WE MUST KEEP THIS TREND GOING! 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.
