Det. Cedric Dixon, 48, worked out of the 32nd Precinct in Harlem. He died Saturday morning in a hospital in the Bronx, the New York Post reported.
Sources told the Post that the detective, who joined the NYPD 23 years ago, 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."
