An “older adult” is the first individual to die from coronavirus in Los Angeles County, according to the LA County Department of Public Health in a March 11 statement.

The individual was not a resident of LA County. They had recently “traveled extensively, including a long layover in South Korea,” the release says. It is unclear where in LA County the woman was visiting.

As of March 12, there are 28 confirmed cases, including the death.
