(Reuters) - Washington state health officials said on Monday that the death toll from coronavirus in the state had risen by six to a total of 48.
All six of the new deaths came in King County, where a long-term care facility in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland was the site of one of the nation’s first outbreaks of COVID-19.
Washington confirmed 904 cases of the respiratory illness as of Monday, according to an update on the state health department’s website.
