COVID UPDATE - Sunday February 21
It’s a pretty big day in our fight to keep Covid-19 at bay with the first vaccinations in Australia starting today.
NSW has recorded zero new cases of community transmission over the past 24 hours, that’s 35 days in a row. Just 3 new cases among the returned overseas travellers in quarantine over the past 24 hours.
The Hunter-New England region has now gone 199 days without a locally-acquired case, and I never thought I’d be saying that!
The number of active cases in Victoria is 25. There are 5 in QLD, 4 in WA, 2 in SA and 3 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.
