NSW recorded no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
Four new cases were acquired overseas to 8pm last night, bringing the total number of cases in NSW since the beginning of the pandemic to 5,292.
There were 10,227 tests reported to 8pm last night, compared with the previous day's total of 11,370.
NSW Health administered 4,056 vaccines in the 24 hours to 8pm last night. The total number of vaccines administered in NSW is now 653,954, with 210,376 doses administered by NSW Health to 8pm last night and 443,578 administered by the GP network and other providers, to 11.59pm on Thursday 29 April.
Sewage samples taken at the Allambie Heights sewage network on 29 April have detected no fragments of the virus that causes COVID-19. This follows positive results for samples for this network taken on 22 and 27 April.
Positive sewage results may indicate the presence of people who have recently recovered from COVID-19, as they can continue to shed fragments of the virus for several weeks after recovery. However, they may also signal undetected cases in the community.
NSW Health urges everyone around the state to continue to take practical measures to stay COVID-safe. This includes always using QR codes to check in to venues, practising good hand hygiene, and staying home and getting tested for COVID‑19 if unwell.
It is important that we maintain high rates of COVID-19 testing, as this is the best way of finding undetected cases in the community and preventing further transmission. NSW Health thanks everyone who has come forward for testing, and urges anyone with even the mildest of symptoms isolate and be tested immediately, and remain in isolation until a negative result is received.
There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW. To find your nearest clinic, visit COVID-19 testing clinics or contact your GP.
NSW Health is treating 110 COVID-19 cases, one of whom is in intensive care and on ECMO. Most (96 per cent) are being treated in non-acute, out-of-hospital care, including returned travellers in the Special Health Accommodation.
