Weekly report: Deaths down 15% this week, cases down 5%, and vaccines up 41%. Everything is going in the right direction

Cases- Down 5% for the week to 2.6k, lowest week since mid May- 356 local cases today- 67 imported will rise again as borders reopen

Outcomes- 128 deaths is a 15% fall since last week, lowest since mid June- 541 recoveries, bringing active cases down to 3.6k- 8.7k tests yesterday.

Vaccines- Almost 2k vax were rolled out in 1 week- 11% of the total population received vaccines this week (excluding 3rd doses)- 11% is the highest of any country worldwide in the last week- 56% of these (1.03M) were 2nd doses- 245k were 1st doses to kids- 377k of these were J&J single dose vaccines- 14% additional adults became fully vaxed in the week, including J & J.

These are officially reported numbers, in any country total cases are expected to be higher than the reported figure.
