Australia has recorded its eighth coronavirus death

Australia has recorded its eighth coronavirus death (plus a quick look at the numbers we know so far); what to do if the pandemic has you dealing with Centrelink for the first time; and why it might be time to dive into that Friends marathon.

A woman aged in her 70s has become Australia’s eighth person to die of coronavirus. The woman was a passenger on the Ruby Princess cruise ship, which docked in Sydney last week.

There have been 133 diagnosed cases of COVID-19 aboard the Ruby Princess so far.
Of those, 107 are people from New South Wales and the others are from interstate.

NSW Health said no cases of COVID-19 were found by doctors on board the cruise liner before docking.
The woman is the seventh person to die of COVID-19 in New South Wales (the other was in Perth).
