New York nurse treating coronavirus patients dies of virus

NEW YORK (AP) - A health care worker at one of the New York City hospitals under siege by the coronavirus has died.

Co-workers and his sister say assistant nurse manager Kious Kelly died Tuesday from the virus after he got sick two weeks ago.

Kelly worked at Mount Sinai Health West Hospital in Manhattan.

A representative for the hospital system wouldn't confirm Kelly's cause of death but said the coronavirus crisis has turned health care professionals into "true American heroes."
