NSW has recorded no new cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm on Saturday, latest figures from NSW Health show.
It is the first time the state has reported no new cases in a reporting period since June 10.
NSW Health’s Dr Christine Selvey said 68 cases were being treated, including three in intensive care. None of these people are being ventilated, she said.
“NSW Health thanks the community for all they have done towards reducing COVID-19 numbers,” she said.
“We continue to ask people to remain vigilant and come forward for testing immediately if symptoms like a runny nose, scratchy throat, cough or fever appear.
“This is particularly important with the start of the school holidays and increased movement of people around the state.”
Dr Selvey said 87 per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health were in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.
Statistics in Sunday morning’s COVID-19 update revealed 12,333 tests had been conducted in the last 24 hour period compared to 12,258 in the previous period. A total of 2,672,392 tests have been carried out.
The total number of cases for the state remains at 4029.To order photos from this page click here
