A case in Arizona
Phoenix officials say a resident was diagnosed with coronavirus on Sunday.
Officials said the patient recently returned from Wuhan, China and is a member of the Arizona State University community who does not live in university housing.
They say he/she is severely ill and in isolation. They're working with the patient to identify anyone who may have been in close contact or been exposed.
"While the immediate risk of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus to the general public is believed to be low at this time, ADHS and our county public health partners will continue to actively monitor for the disease," said Dr. Cara Christ, ADHS director. "There are simple daily precautions that everyone should always take to prevent the spread of diseases."
I'm starting to feel like this virus is targeting ForexLive. In the past 48 hours there have been cases in Toronto, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur and now Pheonix. With that, the four of us will continue to never leave our homes and desks.
