A Missouri resident from Boone County has died of coronavirus, according to Gov. Mike Parson.
This is the first coronavirus death in the state.
Columbia Mayor Brian Treece said the patient had been isolated at home, but the family called for help Wednesday when his or her condition worsened. Emergency responders who brought the patient to the hospital are now in quarantine.
Treece said the patient’s case is believed to be related to recent travel.
