The Minnesota Department of Health over the weekend confirmed the state’s first death due to COVID-19.

Officials says a person from Ramsey County in their 80s died on Thursday, after starting to show symptoms of the coronavirus.  The systems began March 13 and the victim was admitted to a hospital last Monday.

The person reportedly came in contact with an infected family member who had a history of international travel.

Officials say this individual had underlying medical conditions in addition to the risk factor of advanced age.
