Sydney mother-of-four Jamila Yaghi, 38, has died with coronavirus.

"Investigations are underway into the source of her infection, she was not vaccinated," NSW Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Marianne Gale said today.

Granville MP Julia Finn said Ms Yaghi was "deeply engaged in the community".

"She leaves behind four children and an extended family and many, many friends who loved her dearly," Ms Finn wrote in a Facebook post.

"Our area remains the area of greatest concern with Merrylands and Guildford named again.

"I've repeatedly requested more local health resources so we know as soon as possible who needs a test and the test results.

"I can't wait for lockdown to end and I don't want to see us left behind stuck in lockdown or with rolling business closures with continuing exposure to a deadly disease."
