On behalf of the Tasmanian Government I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to the family, friends and loved ones of the 90 year old man who passed away yesterday from coronavirus.
The North West man was being cared for at the Mersey Community Hospital.
Sadly this is the 10th life lost to coronavirus, and the 9th life lost in the North West of the State as a result of the outbreak. To the North West community, which I know to be a tight knit community, my thoughts are with you all.
We will continue to undertake the measures needed to keep Tasmanians safe.
Please, look out for one another. Stay home and save lives.
