COVID by the numbers in the Hawkesbury – Monday September 6



Here's today’s in-depth round-up of Hawkesbury COVID numbers, compiled by Kevin Pollard, who has trawled NSW Health’s latest daily numbers and put them together in an easily accessible form, allowing you to see the numbers in your suburb.


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:


There are 9 new cases in the Hawkesbury today, 3 of which have an unknown source, taking the total active cases to 147 and 78 of those are from an unknown source.


Of the 1281 new NSW cases (was 1485 yesterday) reported to 8pm last night, 68 (was 87 yesterday) are from Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (LHD), which includes the Hawkesbury:


There are 1778 active cases in Nepean Blue Mountains LHD.


Across NSW there are 2300 COVID positive people being cared for in 'hospital in the home' - which means visits from medical staff - and 580 COVID positive in out-of-hospital-care or at aged care homes.


In total – including those actually in hospital - that's 3951 COVID positive receiving a form of hospital care: or 1 in 6.4 people with COVID are receiving a level of hospital care.


And just for the record, the Centre for Disease Control in the US points out today, from late June to late-August, there was an 11-times increase in the rate of hospitalisations among children aged 0-4 with COVID while the Delta variant was widely circulating in the USA.


Here, the Doherty modelling suggests by late October hospitalisations in NSW will peak at 3434 (but says they could go as high as 3900) with as many as 947 patients in ICU.


Currently there are 1071 COVID cases (was 1030 yesterday) admitted to hospital, with 177 (175 yesterday) people in ICU, 67 (72 yesterday) of whom require ventilation.
