Australia’s COVID-19 death toll climbs closer to 100

Australia’s coronavirus death toll has risen by two this morning, with two states reporting deaths.

Another resident has passed away at the troubled Anglicare Newmarch aged care facility in Sydney.

The death is the thirteenth at that particular facility.


“Anglicare Sydney is deeply saddened to advise of the death of a resident at Newmarch House on the afternoon of Thursday 30 April who had tested positive for COVID-19.

“The family has been contacted as have all the relevant authorities,” Anglicare said in a statement on Friday.

While Tasmania reported another death last night, in the north west area.

A woman in her 80s passed away, becoming the state’s thirteenth death, and the twelfth in that north west area.

Premier Peter Gutwein says that outbreak is linked to the Ruby Princess cruise ship.

What an terrible headline that as no clarification in the story. Might as well say climbs closer to 1000 or 10000 as both are as true.
I owned a newspaper for 20 years and love a good headline, but this one is just aggravating.
