0 0

NSW has recorded its first COVID-19 death of 2021 as the state’s premier predicts the number of daily infections will soon hit triple figures.

A 90-year-old southwest Sydney woman – believed to be unvaccinated – died on Saturday, hours after being diagnosed COVID-positive. She was a close contact of a locally-acquired case.

Her death is the first since the Bondi cluster emerged on June 16, and the first connected to COVID-19 in NSW since a man died in December.

NSW’s COVID-19 death toll now sits at 57, and the national toll at 911.

It comes as the state records 77 new local COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm on Saturday, the highest daily total of the current outbreak.
