It will be spreading by the time RATs are allowed. They'll hold onto PCR as the preferred method as long as possible.
Given there will be very little travel testing, PCR capacity may hold out for some time yet.

It will give me time to locate some :cool:


Worth noting, the poo inspector has detected viral fragments in Mandurah wastewater...

How did Dr Young hobble over there?
Please keep her ;)


Interesting but not surprising data from VIC, 96% of patients in ICU are not fully vaxxed (with 3 doses)

so they are including 2 doses as unvaccinated?

I actually think this is quite underhand, talk about moving the goal posts
The 'leaks' seems that National Cabinet will endorse such a decision in two weeks time.

Needs to go through the usual consideration processes (eg AHPPC)

Some interesting extracts from latest NSW Covid Surveillance Report:

1. Percentage of positives admitted to Hospital has declined with omicron (1% vs 10% with Delta), percentage of ICU admissions and Deaths also declining.

2. There is still some Delta circulating. Note that NSW health now only do genomic sequencing on ICU admissions, so the recent Delta's have all caused serious illness.

3. Demographics of cases that resulted in ICU or Death. NO reason given why vaccination status not shown for January outcomes.

Interesting that is week ending 2/1/22 we have seen more Influenza cases than in the previous 12 months.

The more open borders means we are now starting to see flu creep back in, after virtually no cases for 2 years due to all the covid restrictions. Obviously still pales in comparison to covid positives and Rhinovirus.

Covidlive has a revised NSW total cases for yesterday at 65479. Not seen an explanation. Too early for school RATS. Anyone know?

Edit: looks like it is an error-doesn"t seem to be reproduced anywhere else and inconsistent with number of tests.
The Billington graph looked odd first thing this morning but has since been normalised (he credits data from covidlive)

Not seen anything yet.

Though the additional historical 35 deaths that Covidlive has yet to include are documented below.
(ie 70 deaths reported in NSW today. 35 for the previous 24 hours and 35 historic).

Having followed a lot of covidlive numbers, on the odd occasion they do pick up a wrong number and it doesn't get fixed for a short while - eg Vic had a low active count (like under 100k) for 2-3 days about a week ago, but they eventually fixed it.

For the number you are possibly talking about total "cases" in NSW (today 1,083,102 [+12k]; yesterday 1,070,269 [+65k]; day before 1,004,810 [+10k]). I've not seen a source where those numbers are published on NSW Health's Twitter or NSW Health daily media releases. I've not watched a press conference in a while so a missing source could be the press conference.

The net number has been pretty close to the announced new positives until the day before yesterday and now yesterday.

Covid live frequently has errors.

However, NSW have been providing data corrections over the past few days, they have been removing duplicate positives due to person submitting multiple RATs or PCR in the same week.
