According to authorities, a second person in the US has died from the coronavirus. Officials in Washington state said Sunday that the man in his 70s was living at the same nursing facility near Seattle where dozens have been stricken with the illness. He died Saturday at the same Kirkland hospital where the first patient passed a day earlier. Both had underlying health conditions. Following the report, the International Association of Fire Fighters quarantined its 25 members after they responded to calls at the facility.
