As at 8pm Friday 5 June 2020, there have been no new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed since 8pm 4 June, meaning the total number of cases in NSW remains at 3,110.
There were 12,751 tests carried out in the reporting period, compared with 10,171 in the previous 24 hours. The strong community response to COVID-19 testing has seen almost 556,000 COVID-19 tests carried out in NSW.
NSW Health would like to thank those with symptoms for coming forward, getting tested and ensuring cases in the community are identified as quickly as possible.
|Confirmed cases (incl. interstate residents in NSW health care facilities)||3,110|
|Deaths (in NSW from confirmed cases)||50|
|Cases reported recovered||2,719|
|Total tests carried out||555,956|
There are currently 71 COVID-19 cases being treated by NSW Health. There are no people being treated in an intensive care unit.
In NSW, 2,719 people have recovered from COVID-19.
While there have no new cases recorded in the past 24 hours, the virus is likely circulating among people in the community with mild symptoms. As such, the risk of outbreaks and a resurgence of cases remains.
NSW Health is again urging anyone feeling unwell – even with the mildest of symptoms such as a runny nose or scratchy throat – to come forward and get tested.
During the long weekend, it remains essential that everyone maintains social distancing of 1.5m and regularly washes their hands to minimise the risk of virus transmission. People who may show no obvious symptoms or have very mild symptoms can unknowingly pass it to others if they are incubating the infection.
COVID-19 testing clinics are open throughout NSW across the June long weekend, though there is reduced availability at some sites. See the locations and opening hours of COVID-19 clinics.
