NBC Universal, Inc.

A seventh coronavirus-related death has been reported in Virginia.

The victim was a Virginia Beach man in his 70s with underlying health conditions.

It was the first reported coronavirus death in Virginia Beach and the 18th positive case.

There have been 290 positive cases confirmed in the commonwealth.

"It would be nice to say this would be behind us in two weeks,” Gov. Ralph Northam said in his news conference Tuesday afternoon. “That's really not what the data tells us. The data tells us this will be with us for two to three months and perhaps even longer."

The Virginia Department of Health includes probable cases in its county-level data. For the state total NBC Washington is only including confirmed cases.
