Australia Records One Of Its Youngest Covid Deaths
Sydney: Australia registered one of the country’s youngest coronavirus deaths after a man in his 20s died at his home of COVID-19 in Sydney.
The man’s identity and how he caught the virus were not disclosed. He lived in southwest Sydney, the epicentre of an outbreak related to the Delta virus strain that has ravaged the country’s most populous city for weeks.
The man, who was unvaccinated, was 13 days into home isolation after testing positive when his health deteriorated rapidly, authorities said, adding that he lived with one person who had been hospitalised with the virus.
“It demonstrates again how this disease is lethal, how it affects people of all ages,” said Gladys Berejiklian, premier of New South Wales state, of which Sydney is the capital.
