The Department of Health from Washington state has declared that a man has died from the COVID-19 Coronavirus, making him the first official case of this according to KOMO local news in Seattle.
A man in King County has died from the coronavirus, the Washington state Department of Health said Saturday in a media advisory.
This is going to be interesting, because since it is likely that there will be increased death rates, this could cause further social panic as people, whether or not it is based on reason, will fear their own death from it.
If this happens, it will directly impact markets, travel, and other areas of life.
We will be carefully monitoring the public reaction and news as further details emerge.
