San Francisco reported its first death of the coronavirus on
Tuesday evening.

The man was in his 40s and had “multiple, significant underlying
health conditions,” officials told the
San Francisco Chronicle.

“My condolences go out to this San Franciscan and their loved
ones. It is a sad day, and we need to pull together as a City to do
everything in our power to reduce the likelihood of additional
deaths in our community,” said Mayor London Breed, according to

KRON4News.
“Each of us has the power to save lives and decrease
the impact of coronavirus in San Francisco. We need everyone to
stay home, which will help protect themselves, their families, and
the people in our community who are most at risk of harm from the
virus.”

The city’s first reported death comes as San Francisco and the
Bay Area enter its second week of a
three-week shelter-in-place
order. The directive went into
effect on March 17 in a bid to contain the coronavirus, which
causes a disease known as COVID-19, by limiting interaction among
residents. Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a
statewide stay-at-home order
on March 19.

There are currently 152
confirmed cases of the virus in the city. There are
1,023
in the Bay Area and 2,628 in California.
