COVID by the numbers in the Hawkesbury – Monday – 13 new cases last 24hrs in 4 local postcodes



Welcome to Monday and the latest in-depth Hawkesbury numbers and COVID local news – the numbers are up to 8pm on Sunday night.


As regular readers will know, because NSW Health have been changing their system for compiling the numbers, nobody had the complete datasets with all the new cases for each day in each postcode for the last few days.


Kevin Pollard describes the last 4 days of trying to extract the figures “challenging” but he’s not given up and thanks to that perseverance we have now got those numbers, so we’re listing the daily cases for each of the last three days below.


This is the most up-to-date round-up of Hawkesbury COVID numbers you can get, compiled by numbers guru Kevin Pollard using NSW Health datasets.


Our thanks, as always, to Kevin for putting the numbers together in this easily accessible format.


Coupled with our regular news updates when we hear about new COVID venues, this builds into a useful daily source of information for Hawkesbury residents.




Today’s headlines:

We earlier reported there were 5 new cases in the Hawkesbury, but now Kevin has been able to access the detailed datasets we can confirm there are more than double that at:
