Australia’s fourth Covid wave is likely to peak before Christmas as the rate of hospitalisations and infections begin to slow down. Although cases still continues to rise nationwide for the sixth consecutive weeks, it is now at a slower rate. This suggests to reach a plateau in cases by the first week of December and probably a decreasing rate just before Christmas.

New South Wales recorded 31,531 new Covid cases in the weekly reporting period, a 13% increase from last week’s 27,869.

Victoria recorded 22,281 new cases in the latest weekly reporting period, a 9% increase on the previous week’s 20,398.

Previously, cases in NSW and Victoria were doubling in just a fortnight, driven by a “soup” of Omicron subvariants.

On the side note, a huge thank you to those who had contributed in providing us with these recalls. Now let us do our part by solving these for you. You may get them from here.
