NSW COVID records SHATTERED in WORST day since pandemic began | 7NEWS

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “NSW COVID records SHATTERED in WORST day since pandemic began | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

NSW has recorded another 239 new cases of COVID as harsher restrictions are announced for eight council areas in Sydney. Of the new cases announced on Thursday, at least 88 were infectious in the community for part or all of their infectious period. Another two lives lost were also confirmed – a woman in her 90s and a man in his 80s. “Based on those numbers we can only assume that things are likely to get worse before they get better given the quantum of people infectious in the community,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Thursday.

“Can we stress again, as we have in the last weeks – most of these transmissions are occurring amongst households and in workplaces, but also in health settings.

“If you’re going to a pharmacist or a GP, make sure you don’t have symptoms, make sure that you’re asking for medical help from home if you need help whilst you have symptoms.

“We cannot continue to see transmissions increase in these settings.”
