NSW records 390 new local COVID-19 cases and two more deaths

New South Wales has recorded 390 new local COVID-19 cases and two more deaths.

One woman in her 40s, who wasn’t vaccinated, died at her home in southwestern Sydney. A man in his late 90s, who was vaccinated, died in palliative care in the Hunter, New England area.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said cases were expected to remain high in the coming days.

“I anticipate, given the large number of cases we have had in the last few days, but unfortunately this trend will continue for at least the next few days. It means all of us have to work harder to make sure we start and follow the rules,” she said on Friday.

Friday’s figures follow 345 new local cases reported across the state on Thursday and two deaths from the virus, both Sydney men in their 90s.

NSW Health announced on Friday morning a number of new venues of concern across NSW, including a number of Sydney bus routes that are associated with confirmed cases.
