Australia’s COVID-19 death toll reaches 101

The national death toll from coronavirus has risen again this morning, with New South Wales reporting another death.

An 88-year-old woman passed away in hospital, after contracting the virus in an outpatient clinical setting, said NSW Health.

It comes as New South Wales records three new cases of the virus in the last 24 hour period.


All three are still under investigation, and are currently believed to be locally acquired.

New South Wales is just days away from allowing all students back at school next Monday, with parents then urged to consider a return to work.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian is urging everyone to keep a close eye on their health, and come forward for testing if they have any sign of symptoms.

“Can I please stress, as the days get colder, as we ease restrictions, it’s so important for people to come forward and get tested, even with the mildest symptoms.

“Please make sure you do. And please make sure that if there’s somebody in your workplace or somebody in your family who’s feeling ill, that you put pressure on them to get tested, to come  forward and get tested.

“It is essential this happens,” the Premier said.

The national death toll now stands at 101.
