Babies at risk in ACT


THE ACT has recorded another 25 new local Covid-19 cases as several babies remain in hospital as close contacts to virus cases.

ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said 17 Canberrans were in hospital with Covid-19, including five people in the intensive care unit who required ventilatio­n.

Mr Barr said 97.1 per cent of eligible Canberrans had received at least one dose of a vaccine. With lockdown set to lift on October 15, a little more than 69 per cent of people are fully vaccinated.

He said Canberrans should be very proud of that achievemen­t, but urged people aged 20 to 24 to get their jab.
