    Two of these deaths are concerning. The 27 year dying of liver failure due to covid-19 is unusual unless this patient had liver disease to start with. The 59 year old dying at home with high blood pressure is also unusual. It will be nice to know whether he had covid-19 pneumonia. These two deaths need to be further investigated.
