0 new local cases

Contacts from student and from 12 yo boy are in Q

Risks have been managed and tomorrow wan to ease as many restrictions as possible
Gatherings in home 100
No limits outdoors
1:2 sq m in hospitality

Lift some visitation restrictions
Weddings-increase to 200 and unlimited dancing as per 1:2 sq m
Funerals increase to 200
Increasing cases in NSW and Vic and cases in SA

Thanks to lock downs in GS, Vic and SA border is effectively is closed to those areas

Closing borders to rest of NSW
Border zone in place for the border communities with the pass
South to Clarence Valley and west to SA border

Go to school, work, healthcare or care for others

Won't include Coffs Harbour as risk there
Masks continue to wear at all time around others except seated eating and drinking and strenuous exercise

Seen transmission in stadium in Vic

So extra restrictions for stadiums >20k seats capped at 75% capacity
This recognises risks go people travelling large distances and crowds at stadia
2995 in HQ-stretched
5365 in Q in total

Extensions of border restrictions may add to pressure on Q

Have seen more compliance from heavy vehicle industry after risk of removalists travelling Victoria

0 new comment cases today or yesterday

Contact tracing had opportunity to find all CC of cases and get them into Q

358 contacts related to student
316 contacts to family returned from Sydney
382 to positive case at airport

1770 in home Q
5365 in Q across the state
If in Q do not leave home except in an emergency

Being fantastic and if need help call:


They will organise food, medicine etc
Because have all people in Q and reasonably comfortable and tightening border with Nsw where there is ongoing escalation with cases in restricted LGAs and out into other areas- cases in Coffs, South Coast and also positive sewage in Bowral
Important to increase restrictions on NSW

It is hard to know without individual data the average time from exposure to hospitalisation/ICU with Delta

All cases in the recent Vic outbreak were exposed on or after July 8

Hospitalisations began to tick up on July 19 and ICU on July 22

~10-12 day interval
10-12 days ago in Sydney
707-840 local cases and around 38 active HQ cases

If todays hospitalisations better reflect those numbers and:
Hospitalisation rate ~ 16%
ICU ~3.8%
(rubbery figures obviously)

~1600 local and HQ cases July 22
Predicts in ~10 days
256 Hospital
60 ICU
More conservative estimate 12 % and 3%

Hospital 192
ICU 48

On July 23 the NSW Premier finally acknowledged that Delta was a national emergency in order to declare that NSW needed a change to the national vaccination roll out

COVID was a a national emergency when the PM declared a human biosecurity emergency on March 18 2020

Delta was a national emergency when it raged through India killing millions

It was a national emergency when the Delta cases appeared in Sydney in June 2021 and when it spread to WA prompting a lockdown there on June 27

Delta was a very visible national emergency as Greater Darwin locked down on June 28 followed by Alice Springs

It was most certainly a national emergency when Delta seeded into Victoria and SA forcing lock downs there
