3M boosts production of facemasks as coronavirus spreads in China

"We want everyone to err on the side of caution if they have those symptoms and have a travel history", she stressed. In numerous other 26 virus deaths, health officials reported pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and pulmonary infection.

The 60-year-old woman from Chicago had travelled to Wuhan in December and returned January 13.

China has reportedly shut down at least ten cities and put on lockdown close to 33 million people. Dr. George Diaz, section chief of infectious diseases at Providence Regional Medical Center - Everett, said the patient, a man in his 30s, is in stable condition and that they were awaiting direction from the CDC on further testing or possible discharge. It spreads person to person (including healthcare workers), but does not seem to spread before patients are symptomatic.

Health officials in Chicago are "investigating locations where this patient went after returning to IL and are identifying any close contacts who were possibly exposed". At least 60 people are "under observation" in 22 US states. Eleven of those patients have so far tested negative for the virus.

She has had "limited close contacts" since arriving in the city and was not believed to be sick while traveling, the CDC said at a press conference on Friday, adding that she was being kept in isolation at a city hospital. All public transport in and out of the city - which has a population of 11 million - has been halted as of 10 a.m. local time on Thursday. It infected more than 8,000 people and killed 774 - and then it disappeared, thanks to public health measures.

And while it's too soon to be sure, Heymann said the new virus appears most risky to older adults who have other health problems. But more recently, a young healthy man died in Wuhan, raising concern that the virus might be more risky than thought, according to The Washington Post. The patient started experiencing symptoms and sought help for them; officials confirmed the case as involving the 2019-nCoV and have taken steps to prevent it from spreading to other people. A group of researchers analyzed the first 41 patients who were infected with the new coronavirus and admitted to a hospital in Wuhan. The first people infected visited or worked at a seafood market in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

"As we learn from basically every new outbreak, we don't know where it's going to end up until it gets there". It can progress to shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

However, the authors note that they did not study all of the cases in the outbreak, and critically, the cases they did examine did not include the mild ones, so the study comes with some limitations that make it hard to assess risk factors for disease severity and mortality.
