"Anybody thinks this is a disease just affecting older people please think again," she said.

The woman aged in her late 30s was from Sydney's CBD and she died at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, the woman aged in her 70s was from Sydney's southwest and died at Campbelltown Hospital.

There have now been eight Covid-19 deaths in the most recent outbreak.

Of those 141 patients, 60 are under the age of 55, and 28 are under the age of 35.
