“NSW Health is sadly reporting the COVID-19-related deaths of two people this afternoon,” a spokesperson said.
“A woman in her 80s died at home in Pendle Hill this afternoon.
“A man in his 80s died this morning at Campbelltown Hospital.
“These are the ninth and tenth COVID-19-related deaths from the current outbreak, with 66 in NSW since the start of the pandemic.”

A second woman, in her 70s, was also pronounced dead from Covid that same day.
