A fourth case of the deadly coronavirus that originated in central China was confirmed in the United States, health officials announced Sunday.
This most recent case was reported from Los Angeles County.
The country’s third case was also confirmed Sunday in neighboring Orange County, California, the OC Health Care Agency’s Communicable Disease Control Division announced in a press release Sunday.
Both patients were described as returning travelers from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the disease’s outbreak.
The Orange County patient was described to be in isolation at an undisclosed hospital in “good condition,” and the Los Angeles patient is receiving care but the person’s condition is unknown.
Health officials said there is no immediate threat to the general public.
