Merida, Yucatan — A 53-year-old woman today succumbed to coronavirus, the 15th COVID-19 patient in the state to die.

The woman had a history of diabetes and hypertension, which greatly harm one’s chances of surviving a coronavirus infection, health officials said.

The death is Yucatan’s fifth since Saturday.

The patient lived with five people, four adults and a child, and two have symptoms. All are in isolation and under strict monitoring by health personnel.

  • Patients at home in stable condition: 45, down 6
