WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — A Mexican man being held in U.S. immigration custody in Florida died shortly after testing optimistic for the coronavirus, officers mentioned Monday.

Onoval Perez-Montufa, 51, died Sunday afternoon at a Palm Seashore County hospital, in response to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement information launch. He had examined optimistic for COVID-19 on July 2 on the Glades County Detention Middle in Moore Haven, which is west of Lake Okeechobee. Medical workers on the facility started treating him a day earlier after he complained of shortness of breath.

Perez-Montufa initially entered ICE custody June 15 following his launch from federal jail in Massachusetts, the place he had served 12 years for cocaine distribution. He was in ICE custody pending his removing to Mexico.
