It's getting confirmed on news outlet here in Chicago
The woman, who is in her 60s and from Chicago, came in through O’Hare International Airport from China on Jan. 13. Authorities believe the case is travel-related.
The woman is hospitalized in isolation. She is reported to be well and in stable condition.
Health officials said there “is no immediate threat to the general public in Chicago.”
Health officials are currently monitoring 63 patients across 22 states. The only confirmed cases are in Washington and Illinois.
A top medic who contracted Coronavirus says the deadly respiratory disease is so contagious it can be transmitted through the eyes.
Wang Guangfa, who was a leading figure in helping China fight Sars in 2003, himself caught the virus but has since recovered.
Mr Wang says he believes he became infected because he did not have protective eyewear.
