NSW Health Statement: “NSW recorded 105 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night. Of these locally acquired cases, 66 are linked to a known case or cluster – 55 are household contacts and 11 are close contacts – and the source of infection for 39 cases remains under investigation. Sixty-nine cases were in isolation throughout their infectious period and seven cases were in isolation for part of their infectious period. Twenty-seven cases were infectious in the community, and the isolation status of two cases remains under investigation. Four new overseas-acquired cases were recorded in the same period. The total number of cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic is now 6,753. Sadly, a woman in her 90s from south-eastern Sydney died yesterday. NSW Health extends its sincere sympathies to her family. There have been 1,242 locally acquired cases reported since 16 June 2021, when the first case in the Bondi cluster was reported. There are currently 76 COVID-19 cases admitted to hospital, with 18 people in intensive care, seven of whom require ventilation. There were 66,671 COVID-19 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day’s record daily high of 81,970. NSW Health administered 16,877 COVID-19 vaccines in the 24 hours to 8pm last night, including 7,390 at the vaccination centre at Sydney Olympic Park. The total number of vaccines administered in NSW is now 3,031,331, with 1,175,756 doses administered by NSW Health to 8pm last night and 1,855,575 administered by the GP network and other providers, to 11.59pm on Friday 16 July. Of the 105 locally acquired cases reported to 8pm last night, 76 are from South Western Sydney Local Health District (LHD), 12 are from Western Sydney LHD, nine are from South Eastern Sydney LHD, five are from Sydney LHD, two are from Nepean Blue Mountains LHD and one is from Northern Sydney LHD. Given the high number of COVID-19 cases in the community, restrictions have been tightened across Greater Sydney to limit transmission of the virus’s highly infectious Delta strain. Under a Public Health Order in force from 11.59pm tonight until 11.59pm on Friday 30 July, every employer across NSW must require a worker to work from home unless it is not reasonably practicable. In Greater Sydney (and those outside of Greater Sydney who are subject to the stay- at-home rules if they have been in Greater Sydney in the previous 14 days), it is a reasonable excuse to leave your residence for work – but only when it is not practicable to work from home. Residents of Fairfield, Canterbury Bankstown and Liverpool Local Government Areas (LGAs) are not permitted leave their LGA for work unless they are an authorised worker.”7NEWS Australia YouTube Channel
