The coronavirus has claimed a third life in New Jersey, officials announced Monday.

A man in his 90s was being treated at Hackensack University Medical Center in Bergen County and died of the virus, Gov. Phil Murphy said on Twitter.

Over the weekend, Murphy announced that a woman in her 50s had succumbed to the illness, and she was later identified as Rita Fusco-Jackson, a religion teacher at a church in Freehold.

John Brennan, a 69-year-old horse trainer from Little Ferry was the first Garden State resident to die from the illness.

At least 178 cases have been recorded in the state. Across the country, the virus has infected more than 4,600 people and killed at least 86.
