Third death during Delta outbreak

Bateau Bay Square Shopping Centre

Central Coast Health District has confirmed the death of man in his 70s who had COVID-19, the third since the Delta outbreak.

The man from western Sydney had received only one dose of vaccination.

The COVID-19 caseload on the Central Coast remains consistently high with the region recording about 30 new positive tests every day.

Central Coast Health says there is community transmission of coronavirus across the whole region and people are being urged to follow the Public Health Orders, remain vigilant and be tested at the first sign of any symptoms and remain isolated until a negative result.

Local tally = 654

Sept 28, 2021

There’s been an increase in the past week of 220, taking the total since June 26 to 654.

Meanwhile, Central Coast Local Health District will no longer identify exposure sites which are considered low risk.

It will focus contact tracing efforts on people who have potentially been exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case at their household or workplace, a high-risk facility or any location where transmission has been identified or is considered likely to have occurred.

The Health District says there is a very low risk of transmission at venues such as takeaway cafes, petrol stations and for short visits to retail shops.

  1. Just to put that into perspective, we are running at 1 per 10,000 residents per day. And those numbers aren’t growing. And I would suspect that almost all of those 30 each day are close contacts. Yes, I would prefer to to be zero, but 30 on the Central Coast per day won’t make one jot of difference to re-opening. So describing the Central Coast caseload as “consistently high” is rubbish
