NSW Health reported this morning that for the eleventh consecutive day, NSW has reported no recent cases of locally transmitted COVID‑19.
Eleven cases in overseas travellers in hotel quarantine were diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 4,057.
There were 5,385 tests reported in the 24-hour reporting period, compared with 4,789 in the previous 24 hours.
NSW Health said that testing numbers have dropped recently, which is a concern.
“NSW Health is appealing to the community to come forward for testing right away if you have even the mildest of symptoms like a runny nose or scratchy throat, cough, fever or other symptoms that could be COVID-19,” a NSW Health statement said.
NSW Health is treating 50 COVID-19 cases, including three in intensive care, none of whom are being ventilated. Eighty per cent of cases being treated by NSW Health are in non-acute, out-of-hospital care.To order photos from this page click here
