Police said her relatives have been informed and are receiving support from specially trained family liaison officers.
Dawn Sturgess, 44, succumbed to her injuries in a hospital in Salisbury, according to the Metropolitan Police in the United Kingdom.
She and her boyfriend, Charlie Rowley, 45, were admitted June 30 and remained in critical condition.
Test samples from Sturgess and Rowley show they were exposed to Novichok "after touching a contaminated item with their hands", police said.
British police launched a murder inquiry on Sunday (Jul 8) after a woman died following exposure to the nerve agent Novichok in southwest England, four months after the same type of chemical was used against a former Russian spy in an attack blamed on Moscow.
The Skripal attack took place in the city of Salisbury, just a few kilometres away from the site of the Amesbury poisoning incident.
Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the head of Britain's counter-terror police, said Sturgess' death was "shocking and tragic news".
The possibility that the two investigations might be linked is "clearly a key line of inquiry for police", the Met said.
