NSW recorded no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm yesterday.
Four new cases were acquired overseas, bringing the total number of cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic to 4,965. There were 10,177 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day’s total of 12,175.
Regarding the most recent Wollongong COVID19 case – an expert panel has concluded that a recently returned overseas traveller, whose infection was under investigation, had an older infection acquired while the person was overseas. As first reported on 7 February, the person from the Wollongong area tested positive to COVID-19 two days after being released from hotel quarantine.
NSW Health thanks…
