Update on Australia's largest population state vaccination progress

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

New South Wales has reported 1405 new COVID-19 cases today.

  • currently 1,175 COVID-19 cases admitted to hospital
  • 202 in intensive care
  • 80 require ventilation
NSW is on track to hit 80% of those eligible for vaccination having received two doses in another 35 days, which is the middle of October.
