An unvaccinated 83-year-old Singaporean woman has died from complications due to Covid-19 infection on Saturday (July 24).

1. Should "died" replace "has died", since the day and date of her death are stated.
2. Should it be "due to a Covid-19 infection"?

Thanks!

has died

This is common “ reporting” verbiage in media broadcasting.
