As Trump Cries ‘Hoax’, First Coronavirus Death Reported In The U.S.

As President Donald Trump pushes the notion that the coronavirus health crisis is “a hoax from Democrats” to hurt his reelection chances, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday the first U.S. death caused by the novel coronavirus.

The case occurred in Washington state, according to the report.

The United States has already seen dozens of cases from coronavirus, including multiple patients on the West Coast whose exposure to the virus is unknown, suggesting that the disease may already be spreading in some communities.

The CDC is working to contain the virus, but testing in America has been far limited compared to other countries due to a number of logistical setbacks. Additionally, whistleblowers have alleged that health workers are failing to follow proper protocols while investigating the disease.

This is a developing story.
