NSW records 1,281 COVID-19 infections, five deaths




NSW recorded 1,281 new locally acquired COVID-19 infections in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.

There were five COVID-19 deaths in the reporting period.

A man in his 90s from south-east Sydney died at St George Hospital after contracting his infection at St George Aged Care Facility in Bexley, where he was a resident.

Chief health officer Kerry Chant said he had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine but had “significant underlying conditions.”

The other four deaths were aged between their 50s and 80s.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian released modelling which showed the state is likely to reach a peak in COVID-19 cases “in the next week or so”.

Ms Berejiklian said that means the likely peak in intensive care beds required will be about early-mid October.
