This data includes confirmed COVID-19 cases only (based on location of usual residence). Cases without a NSW residential address are not shown. The case definition of a confirmed case is a person who tests positive to a validated specific SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid test or has the virus identified by electron microscopy or viral culture, at a reference laboratory. The details on source of infection are subject to change as public health investigations and case interviews are ongoing. Case counts reported for a particular day may vary over time due to ongoing investigations and case review. Recovery is based on self-reported symptoms, and is different from release from isolation criteria in the control guideline. Only those who had onset of symptoms more than 3 weeks ago are included as recovered. Some people in "Alive - less than 3 weeks from symptom onset/recovery data not available" may have already recovered.
