Another resident of a coronavirus-stricken aged care facility in Sydney's west has died.
An elderly man is the 15th person to die at Anglicare's Newmarch House in Caddens since an outbreak began in early April.
He had "no immediate family" and is being mourned by the staff of the home, Anglicare said in a statement.
On behalf of our resident, we grieve for his death and we value that he was part of our Anglicare family while we cared for them," the spokesman added.
"His passing highlights how terrible this virus is and how devastating it is for the elderly in our community.
The impact of COVID-19 on older people is increasingly evident in Australia and internationally and this is extremely distressing for other residents, their families and members of the wider community."
The national death toll from coronavirus is now 96.
