NSW records 830 new local COVID cases, three deaths

Health Minister Brad Hazzard says New South Wales has recorded 830 new local COVID cases and three deaths related to the outbreak.

“Sadly, very sadly, there were three more deaths,” he said.

“There was a gentleman in his 60s who died at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, there was a gentleman in his 70s who died at St George Hospital and there was a lady in her 80s who died at Wollongong Hospital, and to each of those people’s families, I just want to express my condolences and sympathy to them.

“It’s a very, very difficult time for them and for the broader community, but particularly for those families of those three people that passed away.”
