COVID update Tuesday – Hawkesbury cases today a pandemic record - and quadrupled in last 11 days…



Just a quick update on our local Covid cases because there’s been a big surge, with cases quadrupling in the last 11 days and an eight-fold increase in Hawkesbury cases since March 13.


Today's new case number has given us a daily pandemic record.


Thanks to Kevin Pollard for once again crunching the numbers, and while some may not be interested – please just scroll on by in that case – we’ll continue to report when there are large numbers like these.


Yes, vaccination rates are high, which is good news in preventing serious illness or death, but those infected have to take time off work or study, so it has an affect on businesses and schools across our region.


Today there were just under 400 new cases recorded across the Hawkesbury, at 397 new cases, which is split between RAT and PCR tests.


There were 111 new cases on March 18, so that’s a big climb to today’s figure.


There are 2461 active Covid cases across the Hawkesbury.
