Health authorities in Australia have confirmed that the first death from the coronavirus has been reported in Perth, Western Australia.
 


A male patient being treated for coronavirus has died at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, Australia.
 
The patient was one of the Australians flown out of Japan and placed in isolation after being quarantined aboard the Diamond Princess Cruise ship. 
 
Dr Andrew Robertson, Western Australia’s chief health officer said that the 78 year old man travelled back to Australia from the cruise ship in Japan. The man was diagnosed with coronavirus in the Howard Springs quarantine facility outside Darwin 9 or 10 days ago.
 
The man passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning in intensive care in a West Australian hospital. His wife is also infected with Covid-19.
 
Dr Robertson who is giving the news conference, has confirmed that there is still no community transmission of the coronavirus in Australia.
 
The man’s wife is in isolation in hospital and being monitored.
 
Dr Robertson advised all Australians to protect themselves from the coronavirus by maintaining hygiene including hand washing, staying away from crowded places and to try to remain isolated as well as to consider getting the flu shot this year.
 
Australia has 28 cases so far in 5 out of its 6 states (Tasmania is the only state with no coronavirus infections so far or literally anything else!)
 
There are about 317 suspected cases being investigated with a bulk being in cities Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
 
With cool season fast approaching in Australia which is typically the flu season as well, many are worried that a massive coronavirus outbreak might just erupt. Coupled with the fact that Australia has a high foreign student population and also an Asian population, it is expected that the coronavirus which originated in China will greatly impact Australia as there is a possibility of many ‘silent’ spreaders or asymptomatic individuals who had travelled to high risk countries or had been in contact with those who had are fast ‘seeding’ the coronavirus among the masses.
