A second person in the U.S. has died from coronavirus at the same Seattle area hospital where the first person died, officials said.
The announcement came as the first coronavirus patient was confirmed in New York.
Health officials in Washington state said Sunday night that a man in his 70s had died and he had previously been a resident at a nursing facility near Seattle where dozens of people were sick and had been tested for the virus.
The man reportedly had underlying health conditions, and died at the EvergreenHealth hospital in Kirkland, the same hospital where the country’s first coronavirus-related death was reported yesterday.
Officials also confirmed three other patients at the hospital, a woman in her 80s, a woman in her 90s and a man in his 70s are all in a critical condition.
