Tassie toll hits 10 as man, 90, dies
A 90-YEAR-OLD man has become the 10th person to die from coronavirus in Tasmania.
The man, who was from the state’s northwest, died at the Mersey Community Hospital in Latrobe on Friday.
His death takes the national COVID-19 toll to 80.
“On behalf of the Tasmanian Government I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to (his) family, friends and loved ones,” Premier Peter Gutwein said yesterday.
“To the northwest community, which I know to be a tight-knit community, my thoughts are with you all.”
