First Travel-Related U.S. Case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus Detected in Seattle

Seattle, WA...The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today confirmed the first case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the United States in the state of Washington. The patient recently returned from Wuhan, China, where an outbreak of pneumonia caused by this novel coronavirus has been ongoing since December 2019. While originally thought to be spreading from animal-to-person, there are growing indications that limited person-to-person spread is happening. It’s unclear how easily this virus is spreading between people.




The patient from Washington with confirmed 2019-nCoV infection returned to the United States from Wuhan on January 15, 2020. The patient sought care at a medical facility in the state of Washington, where the patient was treated for the illness. Based on the patient’s travel history and symptoms, healthcare professionals suspected this new coronavirus. A clinical specimen was collected and sent to CDC overnight, where laboratory testing yesterday confirmed the diagnosis via CDC’s Real time Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (rRT-PCR) test.

CDC has been proactively preparing for the introduction of 2019-nCoV in the United States for weeks, including:

First alerting clinicians on January 8, 2020, to be on the look-out for patients with respiratory symptoms and a history of travel to Wuhan, China.

Developing guidance for clinicians for testing and management of 2019-nCoV, as well as guidance for home care of patients with 2019-nCoV.

Developing a diagnostic test to detect this virus in clinical specimens, accelerating the time it takes to detect infection. Currently, testing for this virus must take place at CDC, but in the coming days and weeks, CDC will share these tests with domestic and international partners

On January 17, 2020, CDC began implementing public health entry screening at San Francisco (SFO), New York (JFK), and Los Angeles (LAX) airports. This week CDC will add entry health screening at two more airports – Atlanta (ATL) and Chicago (ORD).

CDC has activated its Emergency Operations Center to better provide ongoing support to the 2019-nCoV response.
CDC is working closely with the state of Washington and local partners. A CDC team has been deployed to support the ongoing investigation in the state of Washington, including potentially tracing close contacts to determine if anyone else has become ill.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing respiratory illness in people and others circulating among animals including camels, cats and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can evolve and infect people and then spread between people, such as has been seen with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). When person-to-person spread has occurred with SARS and MERS, it is thought to happen via respiratory droplets with close contacts, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread. The situation with regard to 2019-nCoV is still unclear. While severe illness, including illness resulting in several deaths, has been reported in China, other patients have had milder illness and been discharged. Symptoms associated with this virus have included fever, cough and trouble breathing. The confirmation that some limited person-to-person spread with this virus is occurring in Asia raises the level of concern about this virus, but CDC continues to believe the risk of 2019-nCoV to the American public at large remains low at this time.

This is a rapidly evolving situation. CDC will continue to update the public as circumstances warrant.

C'mon folks My wife and I travelled to Hong Kong in 2004 and were promptly scanned at point of arrival. This has been going on for years in Asia. Wake up America.

    Being scanned is just taking a person's temperature, you can be carrying a virus for days before you get a fever. But if you tried that here all the dirtbags would say their rights were being stepped on and would be suing.
    If Trump said it was now mandatory the Democrats would try to remove him from office. If a Democrat said it was mandatory the media would say at least they care and Republicans don't.
    And that folks, is spot on THE TRUTH.

Figures the virus would show up in a liberal city where they want open borders, all drugs legalized, and even the cops no longer arrest drug users because they let it get out of hand and it's too expensive. If you've been downtown and walked around you'd see it everywhere. It's like that chithole called SF. Dumbacrats, Socialist, Liberals, a felons dream.

DEMOCRATS GOT SLAMMED, DEMOCRATS THE REAL TRAITORS IN AMERICA

Speaking of viruses, what an embarrassment the democrats were on the Impeachment, Nadler gets scolded for his whining and vulgar language, disgusting. Then Schiff cries to the media it's late we should be sleeping. What's the matter Schiff, flimsy evidence again? Trying to pull a coup on a sitting President? Or did you hear Trump talking to the media before his flight home, and he hinted that what you and the democrats have done since even before the 2016 election, that the DOJ and it's HUGE, GIGANTIC HAMMER is going to be coming down SOON?
Life and Liberty and the TRUTH will soon be raining down like A HAMMER with a vengeance all over those little inflated heads of the democrats, who no longer have the FBI, CIA, and the DOJ on their side.
This will not only be a treat to those who want the TRUTH, the corrupt democrats are all going to be seen WORLD WIDE. Just like Bill Clinton with his HAND ON THE BIBLE!!! LYING TO GOD!!! LYING TO AMERICANS!!! LYING TO HIS WIFE (though Hillary knew, what wife wouldn't?) LYING TO THE CORRUPT MEDIA (serves them right too)LYING TO THE ENTIRE WORLD!!!
JUSTICE finally coming to America. JUSTICE coming to our PRESIDENT, all he's tried to do was PROTECT AMERICANS, and what thanks did he get? Stabbed in the back, by a cult of people who mourned for a General who was responsible for THE DEATHS OF HUNDREDS OF OUR SOLDIERS AND AMERICAN CITIZENS.
Excuse me, but you democrats REALLY AREN'T AMERICANS ARE YOU? BUT YOU INDEED ARE DISGUSTING PIECES OF S H I T. YOU
ARE THE TRAITORS OF AMERICA!!!
