“I think when we look at the data presented in terms of the number of positive tests, a number of people in hospital who test positive, coupled with the sewage tests, I think the trend shows that there is a level relatively high amount of virus circulating in the community, appears to be increasing over the past few weeks,” Banach previously said.
