Four new cases of the virus were reported in Canada today.

The infections- three in the Greater Toronto Area and one near Vancouver- bring the total number of confirmed or presumed cases to 20.

The United States also reported the country's first death from COVID-19.

Washington state authorities say the man who died was in his 50s and had underlying health conditions.

The governor has declared a state of emergency.

In Ontario, York Region health authorities say in one case the patient was not wearing a mask when she flew to Pearson Airport from Iran, with transfers in Qatar and Copenhagen.

They're looking to speak with anyone who travelled business class on flight A-C 883, Q-R 163 and Q-R 484 last Wednesday.

The woman also boarded a GO Bus after arriving at Pearson.

Anybody who sat on the upper level of GO Bus 40 at around 3:55 p.m. is asked to get in touch with health officials.
