The patient is doing well. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a second case of the new coronavirus from China has been confirmed.
She is a woman in her sixties who returned from Wuhan on January 13 and lives in Chicago. Hospitalized to prevent contamination, “she is doing well clinically,” said Allison Arwady, a public health official in Chicago, in a press conference call.
She has not taken public transportation and has had very little contact since returning from China, she said. In all, Nancy Messonnier, head of the CDC, said that, in addition to the two confirmed cases, eleven people tested in the country had received a negative diagnosis, and that 50 other patients were currently undergoing analyses. “Everything is very reassuring in terms of the risk of infection for the general public,” she said.
