Daily Covid Numbers Predicted To Triple


Covid-19 cases in Canberra could reach 3,000 a day by early August.

The numbers are being driven by new sub variants of Omicron, Ba.4 and Ba.5, which Chief Health Officer Doctor Kerryn Coleman believes is quickly taking over previous sub variants.

It’s seen as a perfect storm, rising Covid-19 numbers as well as the worst influenza season in 3 years, putting an immense strain on our hospital system, with modelling indicating 200 or more patients with the virus could be treated in Canberra hospitals at the peak of this wave.

The message from ACT Health is simple, follow Covid smart behaviours and reduce your risk of infection, as well as getting your booster or fourth dose if you’re eligible.
