KING COUNTY, Wash. -- Governor Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency Saturday as Washington sees its very first death from coronavirus in the U.S.

Officials say a man in his 50s came to EvergreenHealth Medical Center with serious respiratory issues and tested positive for COVID-19. He had no history of travel or known contact with anyone suffering from COVID-19.

Apart from the man who died, three presumptive positive cases of coronavirus were confirmed Saturday in King County.

EvergreenHealth confirms that there was also a second patient who tested positive for the virus. They remain in isolation and are receiving treatment. The patient was also not linked to any outside U.S. travel.


Two additional cases came from the LifeCare Center in Kirkland, including an employee in her 40s who remains in satisfactory condition and another women who is a resident and in her 70s. She remains in serious condition at EvergreenHealth Hospital. Both had not traveled outside of the U.S.
