NSW records 1,127 COVID-19 cases, two deaths

© ABC A spike in cases in Sydney’s inner west suburbs prompted the government to set-up pop-up vaccination clinics across the region.

NSW recorded 1,127 new locally acquired COVID-19 infections and two deaths in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.

A man in his 50s from Western Sydney, who had no underlying health issues, died at Concord Hospital.

A woman in her 80s from Western Sydney died at Ryde Hospital.

The areas of concern remain in Western and south-western Sydney, in Auburn, Greenacre, Bankstown, Liverpool, Merrylands, Punchbowl, Riverwood, Yagoona, Condell Park, and St Clair.

Deputy health officer Jeremy McAnulty said it was too early to tell if the drop in case numbers meant the state was over the highest peak of the outbreak.

“We’ve just had a weekend and that can mess up how many people get tested,” he said.

“There may be a factor of the weather in terms of influencing whether people get tested or not. So we’d like to see a few more days before we can have confidence about whether there is a trend.”

More to come.
