A United States citizen has died from the new coronavirus in Wuhan, China, in what appeared to be the first death of an American from the outbreak.

Few details about the American, who died on Thursday, were immediately available. The person was around 60 years old, according to the United States Embassy in Beijing. Two people familiar with the matter said the person was a woman and had underlying health conditions.

'We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss,' said a spokesman for the embassy. 'Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we have no further comment.'
