Two new coronavirus cases in NSW, despite big jump in testing

New South Wales has recorded just two new coronavirus cases, down significantly on the day before.

That’s despite testing numbers increasing to 7,300, up more than 2,000 on the day before.

117 people are now receiving treatment from NSW Health. 15 of those are in intensive care, with 13 on ventilators.


One of the new cases is a contact of a known case, while the other is still under investigation.

NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant has followed up on yesterday’s cases as well, saying there’ve been no new cases diagnosed at the Anglicare Newmarch aged care facility.

The facility has 56 cases of coronavirus alone, including 22 staff members and 34 residents.

Sadly, there was another death at the facility yesterday. 

While a four year old boy who was also diagnosed yesterday is reportedly doing well at his home. It’s understood that no further cases at his childcare have been identified.

How the child contracted the disease is still being investigated.

Other states are yet to give their daily number reports, though it’s understood that nationwide there have been a total of eight new cases diagnosed.
