NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is giving her daily update on the public health emergency in the state.
She says NSW recorded 390 new cases in 24 hours, including at least 60 who were infectious while in the community.
There were two additional deaths. A woman in her 40s died at home in south-west Sydney and a man in his late 90s died in the Hunter-New England region. The woman was un-vaccinated.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says the two latest deaths from COVID-19 brings the death toll in the state to 38.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian has described the situation in the western NSW town of Dubbo as a “big challenge” after 25 cases were reported overnight.
“The NSW government has been liaising with our federal colleagues as well to make sure that we get support to those communities in western NSW in far western NSW, and what we may need to do further in that area is being considered during the day today,” said Berejiklian.
Hunter-New England reported five additional cases overnight, said the Premier. Tamworth, Armidale and the Northern Rivers region reported zero cases overnight.
