NSW records 1035 new COVD-19 cases and five further deaths

New South Wales has recorded 1035 new local cases of coronavirus and five further deaths in the past 24 hours, a slight increase on yesterday’s figures.

Eighty-three percent of people in NSW have received a single jab of the vaccine, and 54.2 percent have had both doses.

“More than nine million jabs have been given in New South Wales and I couldn’t feel prouder of the way in which the community has responded,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.

Meanwhile, authorities are on alert for potential protests in Sydney today.

The response comes after thousands were out in force across Melbourne over the past three days protesting a construction shutdown in that state.

Three police were injured in the Melbourne rallies and over 60 people were arrested.

A reality television crew are being blamed for Queensland closing its bubble with NSW border towns again, with local families and businesses worrying what it will mean for the local economy.

The border wall was brought back a week after restrictions were eased, thanks to a new risk of outbreak in border communities.

Anyone who lives within the Tweed and Byron shires in NSW, is not allowed into Queensland because of an infected Sydney traveller who plunged those areas into a seven-day lockdown when they went to the northern rivers region to work on reality show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

According to authorities, the woman did not abide by stay-at-home orders.

The City of Sydney also confirmed the New Years Eve fireworks celebrations would not go ahead for the second year in a row, despite plans to reopen NSW in coming weeks.

Organisers have cited coronavirus concerns over the decision to cancel the 9pm event.

“Last year, given the increased health, transport and crowd management challenges during the pandemic, the NSW Government took temporary custodianship of Sydney New Year’s Eve celebrations,” organisers said.
