A 34-year-old California man who recently visited Disney World has died from Covid-19.

The man had come down with a cough earlier this month that resulted in him coughing up blood, and a subsequent test at the hospital revealed he had contracted the rapidly spreading disease. He was quickly taken to a local ICU where doctors sedated and intubated him. He ultimately died without waking up.

The man was reportedly at higher risk for complications from coronavirus, having suffered from asthma as a child and having contracted testicular cancer several years ago, though he ultimately beat that disease.
