The Chinese state media reported that the patient who died from the virus in Hainan is an 80-year-old woman, surnamed Xu.
The elderly lady had a previous medical history of cerebral ischemic stroke.
According to the report, Xu’s son was first quarantined as a suspected case at a local hospital after showing symptoms.
Xu’s family drove to Wuhan on Jan. 17, and Xu’s son was unwell two days later.
Xu and her daughter-in-law were both quarantined at home after that. Both her son and daughter-in-law were tested negative for the coronavirus.
On Jan. 27, Xu felt unwell and was sent to the hospital but efforts to save her life proved futile. Xu was later tested positive for the coronavirus. ■ What to read next
