NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has urged people not to get false hope after revealing the lowest number of new COVID-19 cases since March 11.

But he said young people were still not taking the risk seriously enough with 42 per cent of all cases in NSW aged under 40.
Mr Hazzard said he was particularly worried about the mental health of people as a result of isolating and asked communities to come together during the crisis.
“I have concerns about mental health so in a sense I would focus on all of us bringing back that sense of community. I strongly ask the community to come together and be kind together. If you know a neighbour who is by themselves, knock on their door and have a chat,” Mr Hazzard said.
Mr Hazzard said it was his understanding that the troubled Ruby Princess, which is docked at Port Kembla south of Sydney, would start its return journey on Wednesday after 10 days of quarantine.
There are 52 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in crew on board the cruise ship but Mr Hazzard said they would not “send that ship out to sea” if there were ill people on board.
The state government also revealed that from April 17, GPs will be able to send prescriptions directly to pharmacies. NSW Pharmacy Guild president David Heffernan said the new measures were important for the supply of medications as well as social distancing.
He said patients could have telephone consultations with their GPs, who would then email the scripts directly to the pharmacy.
“Your GP will send your prescription to your local pharmacy,” Mr Heffernan said.
NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb said the operation to return travellers to their homes after isolating in hotels had gone smoothly with 1000 people starting their journey home.
She also said the number of vehicles on the road over the long weekend was low, which meant fewer people were out and about. But she said it was particularly concerning that 19 people had been caught flouting social distancing rules and had met for an illegal street-race in Newcastle.
They were issued with fines for breaching the public health order.
