'Continuing and growing problem': New COVID-19 record in NSW as 163 cases recorded
NSW records 163 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday.
Print text onlyPrintCancelHealth Minister Brad Hazzard says NSW has "been case aside" by Australia, as the state's COVID-19 crisis deepened today, with a record 163 new infections announced.Premier Gladys Berejiklian yesterday called on the Commonwealth, and her counterparts in other states, to send their Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines to Sydney, which has been in lockdown for a month amid an outbreak of the Delta variant.
Her pleas were rebuffed at a national cabinet meeting yesterday afternoon, and while Ms Berejiklian didn't front today's press conference in Sydney, Mr Hazzard took up the fight."Last time I looked, we were a Commonwealth, we worked together so it disturbs me that it would seem that all we've ever done to work together has just seemingly been cast aside," he said.
"It is with disappointment that I heard some of the responses from leaders from other states."He said states worked together to overcome natural disasters."I can't quite see the difference between beating back fires and addressing the problems of floods, and beating back this COVID virus," he said. headtopics.com
"If it gets worse here in New South Wales, it could actually create massive problems for the whole country. New South Wales is the gateway to the rest of Australia." Read more: ABC News »

Enough is enough . Brad Hazzard and Kerry Chant have resign. In fact the position of chief health officer Australia wide has become redundant as they have become just wind up toys showing ' concern ' nor presenting consistent KPI's for industry sectors. Don't come Monday GladysB Just roll your sleeves up & work hard & get the systems in place 👌
They cast themselves aside and now just like Morrison are looking to blame everyone but themselves. NSW hasn’t been abandoned by other states , we’ve all shared in your outbreak and trying to stem the tide with lockdowns, which if your arrogant gold standard premier had got of her high horse & locked down early as advised less of an issue
If the federal government had the balls to withhold any financial support for any individuals caught breaking lockdown restrictions, maybe people would think twice before leaving their house Wtf is going wrong down there? Morons protesting is going to make it so much worse 😔 RingOfSteel COVID19Aus This country is no longer one country, especially as there is no federal leadership. Might the other States be reminded that NSW bore the brunt of the inbound overseas travellers. Perhaps NSW should now let the other States take that on?
NSW wants our vaccine supplies so in 6 months they can be prancing around without restrictions and travelling while the rest of the states are still having to wait for vaccine supplies while in and out lockdown. Time’s up guys, you have demonstrated absolute disregard for common sense and leadership, ENFORCE A PROPER LOCKDOWN. Only ESSENTIAL workers allowed, special online permission to leave home for work. Supermarket stores open 24 hours to avoid crowds. People are getting tired..
‘We have a growing problem’: NSW records 163 new COVID-19 casesBreaking: NSW has recorded another 163 locally acquired cases of COVID-19, with 45 who were infectious in the community, after almost 94,000 tests Gladys, this is your fault protecting the bondi cluster ETA on a proper lockdown? ‘Please stay home’ isn’t working The northern beaches contained covid in December, even the eastern suburbs at the start of this outbreak but clearly the west and south west just don’t get it. Is it cultural? Language? Education?
Newsflash. In the first lock down in 2020, yes we were 'All in this together ', since then each state has been every man or woman for himself. After all this is a country where things like education and health have different rules for different states! Lockdown the whole state reduce reasons for travel including exercise Start vac blissing outside hot zone, then hot zones Remember it take 2 wks after 1st dose 33%, 2nd 68%a and 68% to be protected from hospitalisation and death, you can still catch & pass it S
Hazzard and Glady's should take accountability for this monumental failure of government and resign. Their personal contribution to the situation in NSW will cost the nation billions and people their lives. Welp should have done what the other states did go hard and go fast. NSW you got what you vote for.
No worries. Keep your vaccine. We are happy with our mockdown. It seems people in other states are more nervous as they will be in hard lockdown soon. Karma: after the earlier disparaging comments from Gladys and Brad about Dan et al. All very ironic and unhelpful. The problem sir is you guys will not enforce a stage 4! Not enforce masks!! Ask Kyle S about Gladys’s response when she was asked to share to Vic last time- she declined to helpthem then. No Sir you guys need to seriously LOCK DOWN!
All I got from presser is you have a huge bunch of people ignoring stay at home orders & you are choosing to do nothing about it except try & use it to make everyone else feel guilty for not handing over vaccines ... shame on you! Time to get tough & deal with the real issue!! What a hide he has - NSW didn't lock down fast enough or hard enough, and instead of going harder now he and Gladys are whining, and he is even THREATENING the rest of Australia.
chase as much vaccines as possible. that was supposed to be the government's top priority.
Australia news LIVE: NSW records 124 new local COVID-19 cases; Victoria records 26 new cases NSW is struggling to vaccinate as many people as it would like in coronavirus hotspots, Victoria’s state opposition has called for tougher border restrictions and the PM has promised to make up for lost ground when it comes to the national vaccine rollout. That's now 5 out of 6.1million. A 95yo dying from covid makes the nightly news. 2 x 40yo dying from the vaccine, you have to dig around to get the details. Hasn’t been mentioned on any tv news alerts today Fear porn from another rag! Shame on the MSM
Extraordinarily gaslighting. If any Premier gave their vaccines to NSW not only would they not be re-elected, they'd be tarred and feathered. NSW just not taking this seriously enough. Putting rest of the country at massive risk. These same scumbags calling for unity, are the same ones gloating and slinging mud at Victoria, during our outbreak.
Everyone is making it a problem. If we would just relax then everything would be fine. The growing problem is Gladys following flawed health advice and her and Brad blaming everyone. Last time Brad looked, we were a Commonwealth. Should someone tell Gladys…? Like a bush fire that strives on with intermittent showers NSW needs a tropical thunder storm, harsh lockdown ,unnecessary public movements cease, curfew after 8 pm Impact will show in 10 days, shops can open soon At this rate businesses bleeding then fold ,no Xmas rebound!
No deaths won’t be other states fault because we didnt give our vaccines. stop the bs . Lead stop blaming other states . Brad-the-Hazzard wants other states to share Pfizer. The *correct* bushfire anaolgy is: - NSW not declaring fire-bans during hot&dry weather. - Fires break out & spread inter-state - All states now struggling with fires. - Then whining when states can't send firies to help NSW.

The two true tests of any heart are 1. To humbly say sorry when wrong, and 2. For the sorrowful person to be truly forgiven by those wronged. The Most High God forgives like no other and sets the standard. People are judged accordingly. God eventually tests every individual heart A pity there's no one within the LNP capable of cleaning up Morrison's mess. That's poor succession planning. 🙄😠
Your vaccination will take 4 weeks to be effective. The doses you have will protect 10% of your population. Taking Victorian does will protect an additional 1%. Those doses are for Victorian front line workers and vulnerable people. You need 90% minimum. You need to lockdown vaccines are the key.

Maligning Hindus has become your hobby... It was a marriage of a Sikh girl with a Muslim guy. Polls force a change in language. He accepts responsibility for trying to save his job. That is all. Means nothing, cannot take back what has been done. Media also needs to take some for demonising AZ which is not banned for use at all and can be used by anyone on advice of a doctor.
Australia news LIVE: NSW COVID-19 cases soar as Victoria fights to keep Delta under control NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has urged under-40s in her state to consider getting vaccinated, Victoria appears on track to come out of lockdown next week and Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he is sorry for the country’s sluggish vaccine rollout. Murderer!!! Nice! Another approval for the drug we don't have enough of. Don't have enough for under 60's. What a debacle.
'National emergency': NSW records 136 COVID-19 cases and another death NSW records 136 new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8:00pm yesterday. Chief health officer Kerry Chant says the situation in NSW , particularly in Sydney 's south-west and western suburbs, is now regarded as a 'national emergency'. Shocking numbers but not surprised. Sad to see this situation worsening so unnecessarily. What happens in Sydney/NSW can't stay in Sydney/NSW, either. They say, 'With freedom comes responsibilities', hope now we understand what responsibilities is all about.
