COVID by the numbers in the Hawkesbury – Saturday September 4

One of our readers is an avid number cruncher and each day he trawls through all the information released by NSW Health on the COVID figures, which includes how many cases in postcodes both in the Hawkesbury and surrounding local government areas.

He’s compiling them for us now every afternoon, so a big thanks to Kevin Pollard, and if numbers are your thing, or you just want to drill down into the postcode you live in, here’s the info below – all from NSW Health figures.

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

Headline figures today:

· There are currently 125 active cases of COVID in the Hawkesbury, 62 of which are from an unknown source. (Active cases drop off after 30 days).

· Today’s 18 new cases in the Hawkesbury LGA is the highest daily increase so far during the pandemic. The previous record was 12 daily cases three days ago.

· Of the 1533 new NSW cases (was 1431 yesterday) reported to 8pm last night, 96 (was 95 yesterday) are from Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (LHD) which includes the Hawkesbury.

· Yesterday was the second busiest day in NSW Ambulance history.

· Thirty days ago, there were 66 active cases in the Nepean Blue Mountains LHD, now there's 1624.
