Fifth coronavirus case confirmed in fourth state in US

WASHINGTON: A fifth case of the coronavirus has been confirmed in the US Sunday after a person in Arizona has been diagnosed with the virus.

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) said that the confirmed case is “in a person who recently returned from travel to Wuhan, China.” It added that the person is “a member of the Arizona State University community,” and that he is currently in “isolation to keep the illness from spreading,” but is “not severely ill.” Passengers flying into the US from Wuhan are being screened at Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York’s John F. Kennedy airports, where last week this expanded to include international airports in Chicago and Atlanta. (pick up previous) si.ibi
