NSW is preparing for a higher number of new Covid cases today after 124 cases were reported on Thursday from 85,000 standard tests.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard revealed the grim news of a spike in cases on Breakfast Radio this morning, and said today’s numbers would be “higher”.

Hazard said: “I will say categorically that there will be more. As the prime minister said yesterday, we will probably get more, well they will be more.”

Thursday’s figure of 124 is the highest number of cases since the Bundi outbreak began. Forty-eight of these cases were contagious in the community.

NSW Health had to step in and shut down rumors of supermarkets closing across Sydney after a fake notice started circulating online.
An image of a fake NSW government-branded statement started online on Thursday, claiming supermarkets will be closed from 27 July.
In a statement issued last night, health officials dismissed the claim as “false reports” and urged NSW residents to follow only “trustworthy” sources such as the NSW government website and the major Covid-19 rules web page.

“NSW Health has learned of the false reports circulating on social media, indicating that major stores will be closed for four days next week,” the statement read.
“NSW Health can confirm that this is not the case, and remind people to use only reliable and credible sources for information about COVID-19.”
