Death toll from coronavirus reaches nine in US

The US death toll from the novel coronavirus rose to nine, all in the state of Washington and many of them residents of the same nursing home, officials said.

Eight of the deaths have been in King County, which encompasses Seattle, and one was in neighboring Snohomish County.

Nationwide, there are more than 100 confirmed cases, on both coasts and in the Midwest.

The Life Care Center, a nursing home and rehabilitation facility in the Seattle suburbs, is at the center of the Washington outbreak so far. The center has banned visits from family members until further notice, and suspended new admissions.
