A second case of the new infection emerging from China has been discovered in the United States - a woman who returned to Chicago from Wuhan on January 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

Travelers coming from China to five airports - San Francisco International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Los Angeles International Airport, Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport - will undergo "enhanced health screenings" to ensure that they do not have the virus. A couple of days after she returned, she began to experience symptoms and went to her doctor.

IL health officials did not identify the hospital where the woman is in isolation.

Since returning from China, the woman has had "very limited" movement outside her home, hasn't taken any public transportation and hasn't gone to any large gatherings, Arwady said.

Earlier this week, a man in Washington state became the first USA patient, also diagnosed after returning from a trip to the outbreak's epicenter in central China.

The Illinois patient developed symptoms after her return from China. It spreads person to person (including healthcare workers), but does not seem to spread before patients are symptomatic.

"We are undertaking a wide-reaching and rigorous effort with all stakeholders, including healthcare providers, airports and federal health officials, to put in place the appropriate precautions to keep New Yorkers safe", Cuomo said. Clinicians can arrange testing through local or state public health officials for those with signs of infection and recent travel to affected areas or contact with an infected person.

It said that many patients who contracted the virus did not have a fever. The cities have a combined population of 32.2 million people. Older people and those with underlying health conditions are considered the most vulnerable to the virus.

The virus has an incubation period of about two weeks before infected people start to show symptoms, which resemble a cold or flu, the CDC said. However, one of the latest victims was a young, healthy man who died in Wuhan.

The Michigan cases are described as mild illnesses, according to the DHHS.

People who were at RDU or the hospital at the same time as the possibly infected person are not considered at risk for infection, the health department says.

The coronavirus, which first spread from a wildlife market in Wuhan, has not been designated an "international health emergency" or a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

All of the patients admitted to the hospital had pneumonia, most had fever and cough and some reported fatigue.
