New South Wales has recorded 38 new locally-acquired COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, which is the highest daily total in more than 14 months. Eleven of these people were active in the community for the entire time they were infectious, while nine had only partially self-isolated. Some 21 of the new cases are located in south-west Sydney, prompting police to launch a crackdown in the region to enforce the stay-at-home order. Several senior government ministers have suggested that the state will soon need to decide whether to continue to pursue an elimination strategy via lockdowns or simply accept that the coronavirus is going to circulate within the community.
