New Covid-19 wave to hit NSW within weeks, chief health officer says – video

Chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant warns a new wave of Covid infections is looming in New South Wales, with transmission of the virus predicted to increase in the coming weeks. ‘BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron continues to be the most common variants. However, we are seeing a rise in XBB, BQ.1.1 and the BA.2 sublineages,’ Chant says. 

Chant has reiterated the importance of getting booster doses, recommended those most at risk of severe disease plan ahead by talking to their doctor about the antivirals available to reduce the severity of infection, and urged people to stay at home if they have cold or flu-like symptoms
