RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s governor has reported the state’s first two deaths from coronavirus. Gov. Roy Cooper issued a statement Wednesday saying a person from Cabarrus County died Tuesday and another person from Virginia who was traveling through the state also died from COVID-19 complications. Also Wednesday, the state said that positive cases of the virus had reached over 500 statewide. A number of cities and counties are issuing stay-at-home orders, including Mecklenburg County and the city of Durham. North Carolina hasn’t issued a statewide sheltering order but has gradually reduced allowable gathering sizes and ordered some nonessential businesses to close.
