Sources told the Post that the detective suffered from asthma and diabetes prior to his death.


Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said confirmed the virus has also killed two civilian members of the NYPD – an administrative assistant and a custodian.

“We are hurting, we are crying, we continue to fight,” Shea said. “Please help us to help you by staying inside.”

The coronavirus has sickened 512 NYPD commanders, officers, and civilian employees.


One of those who became effected was Deputy Commissioner John Miller, the department’s top counter-terror cop.
