The Northern Territory has reported another daily COVID-19 case record with 412 new infections diagnosed overnight.

Health Minister Natasha Fyles says 70 cases resulted from community transmission and 80 infections are known close contacts.

Another 191 remain under investigation and 71 cases are interstate arrivals.

“We have got 1200 active cases of COVID-19 in the NT,” Ms Fyles told reporters on Friday.

The territory recorded 256 new cases on Thursday with 38 locally-acquired, which was a record and more than double Wednesday’s tally of 117 cases.
