NSW records just 135 new Covid cases and four deaths as expert says ‘even optimists’ never believed virus cases wouldn’t fall this low
Covid-19 cases in NSW continue to plummet after the state recorded 135 new infections and four deaths.
The latest figures reported on Monday come as the state reopened its international borders for the first time in 19 months.
The lowest spike in daily infections in weeks surprised many health experts, including UNSW Professor Greg Dore.
‘Even optimists didn’t predict continued decline—amazing,’ he tweeted.
As cases decline, NSW’s vaccination rate is surging with 87.7 per cent of over-16s now fully vaccinated while 93.6 per cent have rolled up their sleeves for at least one jab.
Cases in hospital have also plummeted to 349, including 77 in intensive care.
More to come.
