Three quarters of coronavirus deaths in Australia can be linked to cruise ships, an aged care centre in Sydney and a cancer treatment ward of a Melbourne hospital.

The national death toll climbed to 21 on Wednesday, with eight of those having recently come off a cruise.

A further five COVID-19 deaths came from residents of the Dorothy Henderson Lodge Aged Care Centre in Macquarie Park in Sydney's north-west. 

The outbreak at the facility began in early March when one of the staff - who had not travelled overseas - was diagnosed with the disease. 

Another two victims were patients in the oncology and ­haematology ward of Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital.

The source of infection for Australia's six other deaths is unclear.

The latest person to die from coronavirus was an elderly patient at Orange Base Hospital in the New South Wales central west region, however no details have been disclosed.

The Ruby Princess has become the major source of COVID-19 spread in Australia, with five passengers dying since the ship docked in Sydney on March 19.   

Border Force and the NSW Health Department continues to shift the blame for carrying out adequate medical checks on hundreds of passengers as they disembarked, infecting hundreds around the country. 

Following the Ruby Princess fiasco, NSW has banned all cruise ship passengers from disembarking until new protocols are in place.  

Three other Australians died after getting off cruise ships.  

James Kwan, 78, died at a Perth hospital on March 1 after returning to Australia from the highly-infected Diamond Princess in Japan. 

Garry Kirstenfeldt, 68, died in a Toowomba hospital on March 25. He was on the Voyager of the Seas which docked in Sydney 11 days earlier.

Ray Daniels, 73, died in Joondalalup Hospital in Perth six days after arriving back in Sydney from a New Zealand cruise onboard the Celebrity ­Solstice.

About 42 people in NSW are currently in intensive care while 275 have no known source of transmission.

It comes after a man in his 80s died at the Royal Hobart Hospital in Tasmania on Monday, and a woman, also in her 80s, died in the state's northwest the same day. 

The elderly man had been a passenger on the Ruby Princess cruise ship, Public Health Director Mark Veitch confirmed, but the woman's connection is unclear.
