Hunter New England Health to breakdown Covid-19 case locations

NSW Health will provide specific COVID-19 case numbers for each local government area so the public will be able to see exactly how many cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in towns like Tamworth, Gunnedah, the Liverpool Plains and Walcha.

The new data will explain whether a positive COVID-19 case contracted the disease locally or overseas.

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said in a pandemic, the public need clear information to make decisions about their health.

He said it will bring home the reality of how serious this situation is and certainly bring home the message that people do need to abide by the current movement restrictions in place in our communities.

The updates on local cases are expected to go live today.
