NSW records seven deaths, as new COVID cases grow by 1288

NSW recorded 1,288 new local COVID-19 cases and seven deaths in the 24 hours to 8pm on Wednesday.

The state’s death toll since 16 June is now 107.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Thursday morning NSW was on track to achieve 70 per cent of residents being vaccinated with one dose by the end of the day.

“It has been a difficult couple of months and the fact that people have heard the messages we have been giving and coming forward to get vaccinated and hitting that 70 per cent first dose is an outstanding achievement,” she told reporters in Syndey.

She said as a result of this everyone who lives in a local government area of concern will be able to exercise for an unlimited amount of time from 5am on Friday.
