ANOTHER 12 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus [covid-19] at the weekend in the Hunter New England Health district, bringing the total to 30.

Supermarkets, petrol stations, pharmacies and convenience stores, freight and logistics and home delivery will remain open.
The shutdown will take place over the next 48 hours.

Schools will be open on Monday but Ms Berejiklian is expected to make more comment on that in the morning.
