   Another Victim Dies in the Hospital

“Kyoto Animation will not be applying any of the money it received from donors around the world for business recovery, but will be using all of it for the bereaved, the injured, and their families.

The company itself will not retain any of the financial support, including funds coming from government institutions, and will move forward under its own power.”

Apparently the victims in the hospital weren't all out of the woods yet as another one has reportedly died.
