Rome, Italy: Two people in Florida who tested positive for the  Covid-19 coronavirus died, health officials said.

According to the authorities, the cases mark the first US coronavirus deaths outside California and Washington, reported CNN.

“Both of the deceased in Florida, including one patient in their 70s, had recently returned from international trips. Their destinations were not publicly disclosed,” officials said.
