In terms of the tragically there were two deaths, a woman in her 80s from the inner west died at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital yesterday and she tested positive for COVID on July 27th and was being cared for in the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital since then. She was not vaccinated. There was a man in his 20s from south-western Sydney, he died at his home yesterday and he was confirmed case of COVID and was isolating at home. He was being cared for by south-western Sydney local health district during his isolation period and he’d reached the day 13, he was being followed up daily by nursing staff and suddenly deteriorated. That death is also being referred to the coroner as I understand it” – NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant.
