Finally, the number of Americans killed by the coronavirus has increased to 6 after authorities in Washington state reported more cases in the Seattle area.

At least four new patients have died from COVID-19 in Washington state, bringing the total number of deaths in the U.S. to at least six as the coronavirus spreads throughout local communities around Seattle, local health officials said Monday.

Public health officials near Seattle reported the nation’s first two deaths in a nearby suburb and several new cases over the weekend. Local officials said that about 50 residents and employees of a nursing care facility were being tested for the new coronavirus after several other people there tested positive. The outbreak there worsened on Monday.
