Mexico Confirms First Case of Coronavirus

Source: WSJ

MEXICO CITY—Mexico confirmed Friday its first case of a person infected with the coronavirus, becoming the second country in Latin America after Brazil to report the presence of the virus.

The patient, a 35-year-old male, is only mildly ill with coldlike symptoms, Mr. López-Gatell said at a press conference. The quarantine is for epidemiological reasons, as the person affected wouldn’t need to be hospitalized for medical reasons, he added.

The virus was also detected by state health authorities in a second person, a 41-year-old man in the Pacific coast state of Sinaloa. Samples were sent to the government’s epidemiology institute Friday for corroboration, although the case is being treated as confirmed, Mr. López-Gatell said. Both people visited Italy in the third week of February, where they probably contracted the virus, he added.

Two other suspected cases are under observation in Mexico City and central Mexico state.
