Two-year-old child dies of Covid in Sydney

A two-year-old Sydney child is among the four people who died after testing positive to COVID-19 in New South Wales overnight.
NSW Health said the “previously well” child died at the The Children’s Hospital at Westmead due to a COVID-19 infection.
“NSW Health asks for the privacy of this child’s family to be respected during this most difficult time.”
This comes as 14,970 new infected were recorded.
Today’s numbers are down slightly from yesterday’s 16,813 cases.
There are 1163 people in hospital, including 34 in intensive care.
Cases in the state have risen as students returned to school and most restrictions were lifted by NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet.
Among students, almost 80 per cent of 12-15 year olds have had two doses of the vaccine.
In the five-11 year old cohort, around 49 per cent have had one shot.

No covid-related death in Victoria

Victoria has recorded no new COVID-19 related deaths and 7,531 new cases.
It is the second consecutive day of no deaths in Victoria, a milestone not seen since September last year.
However, Victoria’s case numbers today are a small increase on Saturday’s figure of 6,694.
There are now 20 COVID-19 patients in intensive care units, with five receiving ventilation.
