Victoria records first coronavirus death in over a month

Victoria has recorded its first coronavirus death in a month, but authorities have assured there’s no new infections to be worried about.

A woman in her 70s passed away overnight, after previously recovering from the virus.

It’s understood she was diagnosed back in July, and was cleared as an active case the following month.


Her death resulted from complications relating to her original diagnosis, and therefore will be counted as a coronavirus death.

It means Victoria’s coronavirus death toll rises to 820, while the national death toll is now at 908.

Meantime, there were no new infections recorded in Victoria overnight. It’s now been over a month since the last diagnosis.
