Local woman dies as case numbers surge

Hakea Grove aged care centre

NSW Health is today reporting the death of a woman in her 70s from the Central Coast who died at Wyong Hospital. She was a resident of the Hakea Grove Aged Care facility, where she acquired her infection.

She was not vaccinated and had underlying health conditions.

NSW Health expresses its sincere condolences to her loved ones.

This was the second local COVID related death in the last fortnight, a woman in her 90s died at Wyong hospital last week, she was in her 90s and fully vaccinated.

Meanwhile official local daily COVID case numbers continue to grow. CCN’s daily case tracker shows clearly how the latest wave has spread locally over the month of December.

Today’s daily case numbers were 291, though it is widely accepted that the actual case numbers are higher, due to testing queues and stress on PCR test providers.

There were 12,226 daily cases in the state today according to NSW Health published data today, Wednesday December 30.

746 people are in hospital in NSW, 63 are in intensive care and 24 require ventilation.

It is unclear how many people are in hospital and intensive care in the region’s two hospitals as reporting systems have not as yet been established with the media.

    I live at Lake Macquarie & John Hunter Hospital manages to report how many people are in hospital & on ventilators. Gosford & Wyong hospitals need to hurry up & inform the media.

    That case numbers and statistics are being obviously SUPPRESED at Gosford and Wyong is a symptom of the insidious secrecy that politicians somehow think they are entitled to ?!?!

    i been saying it since April 2020 Cases on the central coast and testing was not being conducted correctly many people were going under diagnosed for business greed.

    There is alot more we are not being told as local business owners and managers are covering up amount of people coming into close contacts with infected people to amount of migrant workers flooding our farms infected with covid19.

    Service app NSW is not telling people of close contacts for up to 2 weeks later especially in the Gosford shire region which is not good enough from our government.
