Austarlia: NSW confirms first Covid-related death in 10 months

In Australia, New South Wales has reported its first Covid-related death of the current outbreak.

The authorities said a woman, in her 90s, died in Sydney. She had contracted the virus in a family setting.

The state reported 77 new cases on Sunday. There are now 52 people in hospital with 15 in intensive care, BBC reported.

Sydney is currently in lockdown as Australia's largest city fights to contain the highly transmissible Delta strain of the virus.

The reported death is the state's 57th and the first in 10 months.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian warned that the number of new daily infections would rise further on Monday.
