A woman in her 30s, who died a day after testing positive for COVID-19, has been remembered as an “absolutely amazing friend and a sister”.
Jamila Yaghi, a mother-of-four, died at her home in Guildford, in Sydney’s south-west, on Wednesday night.
“She died at home on September 1 after being tested on August 31,” NSW’s Deputy Chief Health Officer Marianne Gale said on Friday.
“Investigations are underway into the source of her infection. She was not vaccinated.”
Hers was among 12 deaths linked to COVID-19 that were announced in the 24 hours to 8pm on Thursday.
Ms Yaghi’s friends and family described her as “a human who had the most amazing heart and soul who would run for others and bring laughter and joy in their lives” in online tributes.
“She was loved by so many people for her kind giving soul.”
Julia Finn, the state member for Granville, called for more health resources for the area, which has recorded some of the highest case numbers in the latest outbreak.
