NSW hits 97 new daily cases, Victoria enters its first day of lockdown


NSW has recorded 97 new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours to 8pm last night. 

Of those, 29 were infectious while in the community. 

“That number of people being infectious in the community keeps going up,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced. 

“We really want to stress to everybody, please stay at home, follow the orders in particular, unfortunately, the Fairfield local government area is still seeing more than, or around three quarters of cases in the Fairfield local government area but we are also seeing an extension of cases in adjoining suburbs and local government areas.” 

NSW set a record by conducting more than 77,000 tests in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.

Meanwhile, Victoria has recorded 10 new locally-acquired cases on the state’s first day of lockdown, including four that were announced in press conferences yesterday. 

All 10 are linked to the current outbreaks and it brings the state’s current outbreak to 24. 

Victoria’s list of COVID-19 exposure sites has grown to more than 120. 

Wani Sakellaropoulos, co-owner of Ms Frankie restaurant in inner Melbourne, says she went into “lockdown mode” when her business was listed as a Tier 1 exposure site. 

The list includes more areas at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and multiple locations in Bundoora, Maribyrnong, and Richmond.
