A 69-year-old Queensland man has died of coronavirus after catching the disease on board a cruise ship that docked in Sydney last week.
Garry Kirstenfield was in the intensive care unit in Toowoomba Hospital and died this afternoon.
Mr Kirstenfield contracted the illness on a Royal Caribbean cruise.
It has not been confirmed whether it was the Ruby Princess.
His wife remains in self-isolation along with all of his immediate family, who have described him as “kind and adorable”.
Mr Kirstenfield is the second Queensland victim of CVOID-19, after a 77-year-old woman last week died from the virus in Sydney after a flight from the Sunshine Coast.
The woman became unwell on the flight on Friday, March 13, and was taken to hospital, but died when she could not be resuscitated.
More to come.
