COVID-19: Canada records first death from new virus

Canadian health officials say a man has died of the new virus at a home for the elderly in North Vancouver in what is believed to be the country's first COVID-19 death.

British Columbia Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix announced at the weekend that two residents of the Lynn Valley Care Centre had been diagnosed with the virus.

Henry says the diagnoses followed an earlier diagnosis of a worker at the care home, making the cases especially concerning as examples of community transmission.
