‘Staggering’: Mother of COVID-positive removalists found dead
The mother of two Sydney removalists who tested positive to COVID-19 has been found dead in their south-west Sydney home.
Police in PPE have roped off the scene in Green Valley, and NSW Health have confirmed the woman had also contracted COVID-19.
Nine News reporter Laura Tunstall told Luke Grant the COVID-positive brothers, who broke health orders by travelling to regional NSW while knowingly infected, were understood to be isolating with their mother.
“Police received a call just after 9 o’clock this morning, a concern for welfare.
“When they arrived, they found the body of the woman – who is aged in her 50s – inside the home.”
The death is the fifth in NSW linked to the current outbreak.
“This is staggering,” Luke said.
