COVID by the numbers in the Hawkesbury – Wednesday – new cases in Richmond and Windsor postcodes



Welcome to Wednesday evening and the latest in-depth Hawkesbury numbers and COVID local news – the numbers are up to 8pm on Tuesday 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, 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:


* 7 new cases in the Hawkesbury - 3 of which are from an unknown source and not linked


* Of the 1259 local cases (was 1127 yesterday) reported to 8pm Tuesday, September 14 - 82 (was 58 yesterday) are from Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (LHD) which includes the Hawkesbury

* There have been 41,177 locally acquired (NSW) cases reported since 16 June, when the first case in this outbreak was reported.


* TikTok comedian, Jon-Bernard Kairouz, 24, who sensationally ‘predicted’ NSW COVID case numbers every day for some time, and who attended the 'anti-lockdown' protest march in Sydney in July while not wearing a mask, has been hospitalised at St George Hospital in Kogarah with COVID while his father, Richard, also has COVID and is being treated in ICU. Richard has been battling COVID at St George Hospital since September 4 and has been placed in an induced coma in ICU.
