Korea reports second coronavirus death

Korea reported the nation's second death from the new coronavirus, with the number of confirmed cases surpassing 200, officials said Friday.

A woman in her 50s died at a hospital in Busan after being transferred from Daenam Hospital in Cheongdo County, North Gyeongsang, where the country's first fatality occurred Wednesday.

She was confirmed to be infected and moved to Busan earlier Friday.
