A Baltimore County resident in his 60s who suffered from underlying medical conditions has become the second known person to die of coronavirus in the state.
Governor Larry Hogan (R) announced the death in a statement Friday evening.
“A second Marylander has lost his life as a result of the coronavirus pandemic,” Hogan said in the statement. “On behalf of our entire state, we send our heartfelt condolences to his family and to all those who loved him.”
“As the number of positive cases in Maryland continues to dramatically rise, we need everyone to take this seriously,” Hogan continued. “This is a public health crisis like nothing we have ever faced before – we are all in this together, and we will get through this together.”
