This message that if you have even mild symptoms when you are someone in the family, don’t wait, get in touch and protest right away. Do not wait. Do it the day you get symptoms. If you have a Covid-19 diagnosis and it’s getting worse, don’t hesitate to call 000 when you go to the hospital or when you contact a healthcare provider.

Identify people early because we know how quickly this can spread within households and therefore if you have an elderly relative there they can easily die.

McAnulty confirmed that there are nine residents of an elderly care facility in Summer Hill who tested positive for Covid-19.

When asked why he was not running the update with this information, McAnulty said that in A number of elderly care facilities, hospitals and disabled cases have experienced infections.

Several elderly care facilities have been affected across the city. With infected employees and residents. We regularly see cases in hospitals or elderly care facilities and we have even had some facilities for the disabled.

So there is an outbreak at an elderly care facility in Summer Hill that I know has affected nine residents. Fortunately, many of them are vaccinated. As I understand it, those with vaccinations are doing relatively well.

About the crackdown by the police, the NSW police say that 1,300 officers were on duty around Sydney on Saturday and checked more than 70,000 vehicles.

The police informed 250 people about violations because they went without  » reasonable apology ”in the city and eight were arrested.

I can point out that this operation is going on today in the greater Sydney area. Anyone who thinks of taking part in a protest will be treated.

In the coming days, it is important to note that the police will enforce QR code compliance and the wearing of face masks in and around shopping malls and large retail stores. Health advice indicates this is of concern and the police will limit the use of face masks and QR codes if there is no excuse not to use these QR codes or wear a face mask in these situations > About 516 violators were enacted and 38 people were arrested as part of this retail raid.

There are currently 222 people with Covid in the hospital, 54 of them in the intensive care unit and 25 on ventilators.

Of those in the intensive care unit, seven are in their 20s, five in their 30s, two in their 40s, six in in their 50s, 14 in their 60s, and 10 in their 70s.

It shows that the disease can be very serious in both younger and older people.

Of 54 in the intensive care unit, 49 were not vaccinated. One person received the first dose of Pfizer and four people received the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

By local health district, 110 of the 239 cases were in southwest Sydney, 51 in west Sydney, 69 in Sydney, three in southeast Sydney, four in north Sydney, and two in the Blue Mountains.

Also in Molong and in the Hunter / New England / Armadale area, Covid-19 was detected in wastewater.

He says that in the 24 hours through 8 p.m. last night, NSW recorded 241 cases of Covid-19 – that’s two in hotel quarantine and 239 in the community.

Eighty of the cases were throughout theirs Period of infection isolated, 35 were isolated for part of their period of infection, and 26 were contagious in the community.

You may find that this does not add up to 239, nor does it entirely agree with what Berejiklian said earlier. We get to the bottom of it.

02:05 a.m. BST02: 05

NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian is now speaking in Sydney. She has urged everyone who can, including younger people who are getting AstraZeneca, to get the vaccine.

Today is August 1st and I am calling on people in Greater Sydney and Greater New South Wales to join in to vaccinate. To reach the 70% target, we need 9.2 million jabs. To reach the 80% target, we need 10 million jabs. We have been talking about this in New South Wales for some time.

Fortunately, over 82,000 people were vaccinated in one day in the past 24 hours in New South Wales alone. At this rate, we vaccinate people for 500 hours a week. We want to do more and go quick, please go ahead and get the vaccine.

The AstraZeneca is safe. Health officials, in the current circumstances, have said that every adult and anyone over 18 should come forward to get the vaccine. It doesn’t matter which one is offered to you.

One dose alone will reduce your chances of spreading the virus, but it will also keep you away from the hospital. And we know the vaccine works against this terrible Delta strain, we know it’s effective, we know it gets people out of the hospital. It also reduces the chances of people passing it on to every member of their household. May I ask everyone to get in touch and get vaccinated.

The consistent message from New South Wales has proven to be the right way to go. Come by for a vaccination. Whether there is a goal of 70% or 80%, once we achieve that goal, life will be very different.

I like to lose it easily, but this time I laughed out loud. No conflict with NSW!

The update is given by Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton and acting Covid-19 commander Naomi Bromley.

In the meantime, the Australian eventing team is tackling the cross-country ski run in Tokyo this morning. Shane Rose and Virgil jumped error-free without any time penalties – one of only three drivers who have so far jumped error-free within the time.

Jonelle Price with Grovine de Reve and Kevin McNab and Scuderia 1918 Don Quidam also jumped error-free, but outside of the course time of 7 minutes and 45 seconds, at 7:50 and 7:51 respectively. Very low penalties. It puts Australia in a good position.

One possible link between the overseas cases and Indooroopilly State High School, 17, is a medical student who taught her.

Young says she isn’t sure the medical student is the index case for this outbreak is, but it is being investigated. The medical student had a vaccination appointment but had not yet received a vaccination. Medical students are part of the 1B cohort, meaning they have been eligible since April.

But I’ll be honest with you, my priority was actually health workers, getting health workers vaccinated was more important and students came second. So she had an appointment for a vaccine in the next week, she made that appointment and did her best to try to get vaccinated. But she couldn’t access a vaccine. As a result, I have said that when we were arranged in restrictions as we did recently, health workers and students who were not vaccinated could not do clinical internships in vulnerable settings such as hospitals and elderly care or the disabled.

Ekka, the Royal Brisbane Show, runs from August 7th to 15th. It is not yet clear whether this will continue.

The organizers have delayed the construction in response to the lockdown. Young says the show’s organizers are working very closely with their public health team.

Young says that people must wear a mask outdoors, even when they are exercising, unless they are doing « strenuous exercise ».

Exhaustive exercise is where you puff and puff and really, wearing a mask could be harmful to your health. Walking around is not a strenuous exercise for the vast majority of people. If you are in your 90s and struggling, this would probably be strenuous exercise, but for most people my age it is not a strenuous exercise.

Young says she believes the virus spread in during this outbreak in schools because masks are not worn in schools.

I think they are masks. I really think masks have a huge impact.

I am concerned that this will spread to schools because they don’t use masks. Therefore, we have introduced that all children, when schools are back for this very small number of children on Monday and Tuesday, children of important workers or vulnerable children, in secondary school from the seventh grade, no matter how old they are … they have to wear masks. And all elementary school and high school teachers, unless they teach deaf children … must wear masks.

1.24 a.m. BST01: 24

Young said the threshold for lifting the ban will be when she is « confident that any cases that may have been uncovered are safely quarantined and unlikely to be contagious in the community ».

The purpose of the lockdown is to stop the virus from spreading so that everyone is in their homes when we find people, we find them in their homes and there is minimal exposure to them in the community. They might have gone to buy something to eat, or they might have taken a walk in their immediate vicinity wearing a mask. But they haven’t been to restaurants, karate classes, the gym, etc.

1:22 a.m. BST01: 22

Young says Queensland should aim for 40,000 tests a day. That would be a record number of tests for this state.
