Eight more people with coronavirus have lost their lives in New South Wales and Victoria, with two and six new deaths recorded in each state respectively.

NSW recorded 25,495 new infections today, while Victoria recorded 10,424.

COVID-19 cases have increased in NSW, but decreased in Victoria from yesterday.

To date more than 3,500 people have died from COVID-19 across Australia in 2022.

This number is under constant review however.

In an update given yesterday, Director of NSW Health, Jeremy McAnulty said the state has identified additional COVID-19 related mortalities.

The state did this by cross-checking death certificates from the registry of births, deaths and marriages during the course of the pandemic.

“Analysis of this data has found an additional 331 COVID-19 related deaths from January 2020 – March 2022,” he said.

“The certifying doctor found COVID-19 as the contributing factor or cause of death. More than 270 or 82 per cent … were found to have occurred from the 1st of January 2022 during the peak of the Omicron wave.

“Fifty eight deaths occurred during 2021, largely coinciding with the peak of the Delta wave, and three in 2020.”

NSW’s total death toll since the beginning of the pandemic is now 2431.
