?? COVID UPDATE - Friday, October 23
?? Some really great news today - NO locally-acquired cases in NSW and just ONE in Victoria! So great to see Victoria coming out of what's been a dreadful few months.
?? NSW had 7 new cases among returned overseas travellers. They were all diagnosed while in quarantine of course.
?? The Hunter-New England region has now gone 11 FULL WEEKS without a locally-acquired case.
?? Victoria had just the one new case as I mentioned earlier and no new deaths. The ACT has recorded it first case in several months, a diplomat who had returned from overseas. The other States are yet to report today's figures, but there were 8 new cases in WA reported late yesterday.
?? Australia's death toll remains at 905 with the NSW toll still at 55 and Victoria's at 817.
?? The number of active cases in NSW is 54. There are 100 active cases in Victoria, 4 in QLD, 48 in WA, 8 in SA and one in the ACT. Tasmania and the NT remain Covid-free.
?? 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.
?? Don't forget, if you have any symptoms, however minor, please self-isolate and get tested as soon as possible.
