Police will conduct high-visibility operations across the state to disrupt potential anti-lockdown protests scheduled for today, as NSW recorded 1331 new local COVID-19 cases and six deaths.

For the first time since the Delta strain outbreak, the Berejiklian government used a pre-recorded video of NSW Health’s Dr Jeremy McNulty to present the COVID-19 daily update, avoiding any live questions from the media.

Of the people who died, there were four women and two men from western and south-western Sydney, with one person in their 40s, one in their 60s, two in their 70s, and two aged in their 80s.

One person, a man in his 70s from western Sydney, acquired his infection overseas.

There are 1219 patients with COVID-19 currently hospitalised in NSW, with 233 cases in ICU.

The total number of cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic has now reached 50,730.

There were 120,954 COVID-19 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day’stotal of 155,334.

NSW Deputy Chief Health Officer Jeremy McAnulty said 81.2 per cent of people aged over 16 have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 50.6 per cent are fully vaccinated.

“This is fantastic news, thank you so much for coming feared to get vaccinated and helping us to get out of this pandemic,” Dr McAnulty said.

The total number of vaccines administered in NSW is now 8,720,728.

Meanwhile, police have begun arriving in large numbers at Sydney Park for a midday anti-lockdown protest

Witnesses say there are several buses reserved for a police operation that are parked along Sydney Park Road, with the car park to the area sealed off, and officers manning each entry point to the park.

There are also police patrolling the park on bicycles, as well as speaking to people sitting down in the park.
