Police have confirmed another person has died as a result of injuries suffered in the eruption on 9 December.

Out of the official tally of 21 deaths, 18 people have died in New Zealand and two in hospitals in Australia.

Tims said they would do so after the person's wider family has been informed.

The volcano is New Zealand's most active volcano till date and more than half of it is underwater.

Although they have been officially declared dead by the coroner, the bodies of White Island Tours guide Hayden Marshall-Inman, 40, and Australian teenager Winona Langford, 17, remain missing.

At the time of the eruption, 47 people were on the island including 38 cruise ship passengers.

Vick Singh described his uncle Paul as an "invincible businessman" and his aunt Mary as a "true super mom".

He said Mary suffered burns to 72% of her body and Paul to 55% of his body, with doctors describing him as a fighter after he underwent numerous surgeries and treatments.

As the President of SEVA International Atlanta USA Chapter, he led the Sponsor-A-Child initiative - a project that funds hundreds of under-privileged children for education and health care.

Tourists who had visited the island immediately before the eruption told The Associated Press they were provided with minimal safety equipment such as hard hats and optional gas masks, which they could wear if they had trouble breathing.

Paul Singh is the latest victim of the White Island volcano eruption that occurred last month in New Zealand. His wife Mary succumbed to her injuries from the eruption on Dec. 22

He also served as an organisational member/sponsor at many local temples including ISKCON, Hindu Temple, Shakti Mandir.

"His unmatched exuberance and unconditional love for everyone around him will forever be missed", he said.

"He was the best father, the best guardian, the best brother, the best uncle, the best volunteer and the best friend you could ask for".

"I'm sure that anyone who enjoyed any of her meticulously prepared handmade meals (Indian, American, Italian or Mexican) can certainly vouch for her".

After learning his family members were caught up in the eruption, Bhupender Singh travelled to New Zealand to care for them.

"Our family continues to pray for a healthy and fast recovery of the remaining survivors. The last 50 days have been excruciating, slow and painful", he said.

They commended medical staff at Middlemore Hospital for their efforts, as well as the emergencies services and authorities.

"She was one of a kind - we love her, we miss her so much", he said.

Another friend also expressed her heartache after learning of Singh's death.
