California officials to reevaluate first reported US teen coronavirus death after questions arise about actual cause of death

A 17-year-old teen in California died last week, and his death was initially reported as being the first teenager to die from COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China.

A teenager in Lancaster, California, died on March 18.

The teen tested positive for the coronavirus at the hospital, and his parents were also told they had the virus.

Lancaster, located in northern Los Angeles County, has a population of about 160,000.

In a Tuesday night statement, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said there may be more to the death than was initially reported.
