COVID UPDATE - Saturday February 20
The good news is that despite me being placed in Facebook exile for a few days, NSW has recorded zero new cases of community transmission over that period. That’s 34 days in a row. Just the one case among the returned overseas travellers in quarantine over the past 24 hours.
The Hunter-New England region has now gone 198 days without a locally-acquired case.
The number of active cases in Victoria is 25. There are 5 in QLD, 4 in WA, 2 in SA and 2 in the NT. Tasmania, the ACT and NSW have zero active cases.
Australia's death toll remains at 909 with 56 in NSW and 820 in Victoria.
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 immediately.
