The 41-year old went to a concert by Swedish band Ghost in Mexico City and fell ill days later
Mexico's first coronavirus death is a 41-year-old man who earlier this month went to a concert by Swedish rock band Ghost in Mexico City. According to reports published in multiple media outlets, including the BBC and Mexico’s El Universal, the man went to the concert at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes on March 3, along with over 50,000 other fans.
The man had been hospitalized since March 9 but today, Mexico's Secretary of Health announced his passing. He had an underlying health condition, diabetes, which may have contributed to his death.
A 40-year-old man who went to the same concert also tested positive for COVID-19 and was hospitalized but is in stable condition.
