NSW records 35 new Covid cases, Victoria has none

NSW Health authorities are begging people to stay socially distanced this weekend as the current COVID-19 outbreak gripping Sydney continues to grow.
One week into full lockdown, 35 new cases of community transmission were recorded on Saturday, nine of which were infectious during their time in the community.
“While, as predicted, the number of cases is going up, we are seeing a greater proportion of those cases in isolation, which is exactly what we want to see,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.
“The green shoots are there.”
However, Ms Berejiklian said it was “too soon” to confirm yet whether Greater Sydney’s lockdown would end on time.
“I anticipate that obviously some time next week we’ll be in a position to tell the community where things are at,” she said.
However, no new covid cases have been diagnosed in Victoria in the past 24 hours.
No cases were detected locally or in international arrivals in the state after 24,247 tests were conducted.
Nearly 20,000 vaccine doses were administered in the state in the past 24 hours, including Premier Daniel Andrews who received his second Pfizer injection.
