Premier Gladys Berejiklian says New South Wales has recorded 633 new local cases of COVID-19 – with at least 62 infectious in the community – as well as three deaths related to the outbreak.
“At the moment, according to the data we have, every person who has the virus is spreading it to at least more than one person,” she said.
“Now, for us to know that we have reached our peak, that can’t continue.
“So, what the data is telling us in the last few days is that we haven’t seen the worst of it and the way that we stop this is by everybody staying at home.
“You have to assume, no matter where you are in the state, that every time you set foot out of your door, that you have the virus or anybody you’re in contact with has the virus.”
