CDC confirms second US Wuhan coronavirus case

Source: CNN

A second case of Wuhan coronavirus in the United States has been identified in Chicago, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday in a press briefing.

The patient is a Chicago resident in her 60s. She is in isolation at a hospital in Chicago.

The patient flew from Wuhan to Chicago on January 13. She was not ill while traveling and health authorities do not think she spread the virus during that time. Health authorities say she has had limited close contacts since returning to Chicago.

Sixty-three people from 22 states are under investigation for the virus, health officials said.

2. With a 2 week incubation period this ain't going to be the last one either

There are likely people out there who have it and don't know it that have been all over the place both here and abroad.

3. Have all 63 people have traveled from Wuhan in the past month?

Are we about to have a replay of the Ebola virus, with people "immigrating" in hopes of getting better medical care?

P.S. Someone in New Jersey has just been cleared, but there's no indication of why she was suspected.

4. This is SARS all over again.

I lived in Hong Kong through SARS and it was scary. We didnít leave the house. We were checking fever everyday. We freaked if anyone in the family sneezed or coughed. Then, it was civet cats. Now itís what? Bats? Snakes? Will they ever learn? China was slow to tell everyone with SARS and it spread quickly. I fear the same thing has happened. I assume they knew long before and tried to keep it quiet in hopes to contain it. And, now here we are.
