However, there has been one death - a woman, 87, who was a passenger on the Ruby Princess cruise ship, died in Sutherland Hospital in April. NSW Health has revealed the woman was a resident in postcode 2228, which covers Miranda and Yowie Bay.

State-wide numbers continue to be very low, with only 16 new cases confirmed in the last week, and most overseas acquired, with the travellers in isolation in Sydney hotels.
