NSW records 207 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases, with at least 50 infectious in community

NSW recorded 207 new local COVID-19 cases on Monday, with at least 50 of those infectious in the community.

The main form of transmission remains workplaces and households.

117,000 people came forward to get tested.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian urged people to get vaccinated. She said no COVID-19 patients in the state’s ICU wards had received both doses of the vaccine.

“Can I stress that August is the month where we all should come forward and get vaccinated,” she said.

“It will be a combination of seeing where the case numbers are in a month’s time, as well as the rate of vaccination, that determines what August 29 looks like.

“I have been saying for some months that 80 per cent of the adult population vaccinated would get us freedoms beyond no more lock downs, and that is 10 million jabs.”

A man in his 90s from south-western Sydney has died at Liverpool Hospital.
