NSW records 1,281 new COVID-19 cases, 5 deaths

NSW has recorded 1281 new Covid-19 cases and five new deaths in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she has received modelling from health experts that charts the state’s path out of lockdown.
Ms Berejiklian said that modelling has shown that the state’s intensive care units are likely to experience the peak of COVID-19 patients in early to mid October.
NSW has a “surge capacity” of 1550 beds in intensive care units designed to ease the load on the health system.
Dr Nhi Nguyen, who works in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Nepean Hospital, has detailed the preparations ICUs have been making for the Delta strain of the virus.
“Earlier this year, we heard about the pandemic coming through India as the Delta wave,” Dr Nguyen said.
“And although there was this lull over Christmas, there was all this work being done in the background and since about March or April we have started to ramp that up again.
“And we have been fortunate that none of those plans that we spend working on in 2020 had time to gather dust.”
In the past week more than 750,000 NSW residents received a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
