The data comes with some important disclaimers from the NSW Government: "The dataset is updated daily, except on weekends. However, Publication of some data in this dataset is being delayed because the risk of gaining information about an individual in the dataset increases as the number of cases decreases.
The data is for confirmed COVID-19 cases only based on location of usual residence, not necessarily where the virus was contracted. The case definition of a confirmed case is a person who tests positive to a validated specific SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid test or has the virus identified by electron microscopy or viral culture, at a reference laboratory. Data reported at 8pm daily."

This app draws the data dynamically from the open NSW Government database. Unfortunately, several times in the last few weeks data has been incorrectly uploaded to the database.

The practical result is that it looks like the database is a crystal ball looking into the future with cases being reported for months in advance.
For the conspiracy theorists: every time this happens the people in charge acknowledge the mistake and fix it pretty quickly. But, then, they would say that wouldn't they...
