NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has said he feels ‘quite positive’ about Sydney’s latest COVID-19 figures, which are set to be made public at 11am on Tuesday.
Defending NSW Health, Mr Hazzard said ‘what we are doing at the moment is about as good as it gets’ in the face of the pandemic during an interview on ABC Radio National on Tuesday morning.
People in Sydney’s Northern Beaches have reported waiting upwards of six hours for COVID-19 tests – only to be turned away at closing time.
When asked about the hours-long wait, Mr Hazzard said NSW Health had done a lot of work on increasing testing sites and staff.
NSW recorded 15 more Covid cases on Monday – all of which are linked to the northern beaches cluster which now stands at 83.
More to come.
