NSW Health will no longer issue a routine daily COVID-19 media release

From Monday 25 April, NSW Health will no longer issue a routine daily COVID-19 media release. COVID-19 information will continue to be reported through NSW Health’s social media accounts and website each morning, with more detailed information and analysis contained in the weekly COVID-19 surveillance reports: https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/.../Pages/weekly-reports.aspx


. A wide range of COVID-19 information and advice is also available on the NSW Government website: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19

Sadly, NSW Health is today reporting the deaths of 16 people with COVID-19; eight men and eight women.

One person was aged in their 20s, one person was aged in their 60s, two people were aged in their 70s, eight people were aged in their 80s and four people were aged in their 90s. Older age is a significant risk factor for serious illness and death for COVID-19, particularly when combined with significant underlying health conditions.

Of the 15 people who died over the age of 65, six people had received three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, two people had received two doses, three people had received one dose and four people were unvaccinated.

The person who died under the age of 65 had received four doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and had significant underlying health conditions.

Five people were from northern Sydney, three people were from the state’s Mid Coast, two people were from the Lake Macquarie area, two people were from south-western Sydney, one person was from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, one person was from Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, one person was from the Blue Mountains, and one person was from the South Coast.
