30-year-old mother-of-three identified as Sydney's latest COVID death.
Ianeta Isaako has been named on social media as the woman in her 30s who died at her home in Emerton on Monday with COVID-19.
She is the 75th death in NSW since the most recent COVID-19 outbreak started in June. Her husband is still in hospital with the virus.
The Daily Telegraph reports the 30-year-old was found unresponsive at her home in western Sydney, about 3pm on Monday just days after she had tested positive to the virus. She could not be resuscitated.

There were no COVID-related deaths reported by NSW Health on Tuesday morning's update, with Isaako's passing to be included in Wednesday's update.
