Covid figures for Friday

Filed in Just In by October 1, 2021

THERE were 15 deaths in the past 24 hours, the most to date in New South Wales, including a woman in her 50s who died at home.

The first case of covid has been identified in Merriwa and more new cases in Muswellbrook, Singleton, Dungog and Cessnock (see details below).

The virus has been detected in Quirindi, Armidale and Tamworth sewerage networks.
