A US citizen has died of coronavirus in China. The patient succumbed to the disease in Wuhan – the epicenter of the epidemic which has already spread to more than 20 countries.
“We can confirm that a 60-year-old US citizen diagnosed with coronavirus died at a hospital in Wuhan, China, on February 6,” a U.S. embassy spokesman said. The US citizen was a woman with underlying health conditions, according to sources.
By all accounts, this is the first American to die from the disease, believed to be a Biological Weapon which accidentally got out of the Wuhan Virology Laboratory.
“We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss,” a spokesman for the United States Embassy in Beijing told the Times. “Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment.”
America began taking precautions against the spread of the deadly virus early in the outbreak. On January 17, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) announced a joint effort, which involved deploying health officials to airports.
