COVID by the numbers in the Hawkesbury – Tuesday - biggest rise in Windsor postcode today



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


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 once again 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:

* This morning we thought there had only been 6 new Hawkesbury cases, but after deep diving into the numbers, Kevin has found 13, all of which are from an unknown source and not linked. We’ll break those down into suburbs below, but Windsor postcode is where most of them are.


* There are 145 active COVID cases in the Hawkesbury LGA, was 146 the day before


* Of the 1127 new NSW cases (was 1257 yesterday) reported to 8pm Monday, September 13 - 58 (was 78 yesterday) are from Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (LHD), which includes the Hawkesbury.


* There are 837 active cases (was 877 yesterday) in the Nepean Blue Mountains LHD


* As per NSW Health's new definition, active COVID cases now last for 10 days (10 days after they test positive). NSW Health are basing it on COVID symptoms usually being 3-4 days before someone tests positive, so 4 days plus 10 days is 14 days. It used to be 30 days. This is a significant change, which has effectively seen active cases halve.

* If you were wondering why there were some gaps in supermarket shelves, it’s due to this - there have been more than 150 COVID cases among food logistics (Woolies, Coles, Aldi) and distribution employees during NSW’s Delta outbreak, affecting 98 facilities and slowing down sorting and deliveries.

* Latest data from the national childcare authority shows more than 100 childcare and early learning centres are being shut in NSW each week due to virus exposures.


* Back to school? More than 1.2 million children have tested positive in the US since they returned to classrooms in late July. More than 243,000 American children tested positive for COVID in the last week, the second-highest week ever for pediatric cases in the US. In this week, children accounted for 28.9% of the cases in the US. Across the US, 2200 children are in hospital with COVID.
