California resident Jeffrey Ghazarian died at Pasadena’s Huntington Hospital on Thursday, Mar. 19, after testing positive for coronavirus following a visit to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida. The 34-year old’s passing marks the second confirmed death in L.A. County.

Ghazarian, according to TMZ, developed a fever and cough during his trip to Orlando, Florida for a work conference where he also paid trips to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. He traveled back to L.A. on Mar. 9 and went to the emergency room.

Ghazarian spent 5 days at Huntington Hospital on a ventilator after being tested positive for the coronavirus and pneumonia.

Ghazarian also reportedly had a history of asthma and bronchitis and was diagnosed with cancer in 2016, possibly making him a higher-risk patient.
