A US citizen who contracted the coronavirus has died in a Wuhan hospital, the US Embassy in Beijing said.
The virus has killed 722 people in mainland China. Two outside mainland China have also died from the virus -- a man in Hong Kong and a Chinese man in the Philippines.
Here's what the US Embassy said:
We can confirm a 60-year-old U.S. citizen diagnosed with coronavirus died at Jinyintian Hospital in Wuhan, China on February 6 (Thursday). We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss. Out of the respect for the family's privacy, we have no further comment.
