CDC: First confirmed case of Coronavirus discovered in Washington State

The first case of an infection with a new coronavirus has been discovered in the United States. 

A man from Washington state returned home after a trip to Wuhan, China, on Jan. 15, sought medical attention on Jan. 19 and now is in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington.


Washington State health officials have described the man’s condition as “good” and even some have referred to him as ‘healthy.’

So far, 300 cases have been reported world-wide resulting in six deaths in China. Health professionals world-wide have ramped up precautions to combat spreading the deadly disease.

Three U.S. airports, JFK in New York, SFO in San Francisco and LAX in Los Angeles — have set up “additional security screenings for passengers coming from infected areas.”
