Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said she extended her sympathies to the man’s family.
She did not share whether the man was vaccinated.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said it was promising that cases had dropped after 112 new cases on Monday but stressed it was too soon to celebrate.
“In the next few days we want to see those numbers go in the same direction,” she said.
“One day is not a trend. The numbers will keep bouncing around.
“But I do want everyone to know that our efforts will make a difference.”
