CDC director downplays claim that coronavirus spread is inevitable

CDC spokesman Richard Quartarone said a preliminary review of agency records indicates the agency did not know about the woman until Sunday, the same day the woman was first tested.

Last month, the Trump administration restricted entry of people from China into the US and required Americans returning from locations heavily impacted by the outbreak to be quarantined.

The case highlights the fact that most testing in US up to now has been limited to those who, in addition to showing symptoms, have a history of travel to countries affected by the disease or contact with those who have done so, said Lauren Sauer, director of operations at Johns Hopkins University's Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response. Health officials have been on high alert for what they call community spread. "We are evaluating the complaint and have nothing further to add at this time", Oakley said.

"UC Davis Health does not control the testing process", the hospital noted.

Nassau County Health Department officials said Wednesday that the CDC has contacted the agency each time someone who has spent time in China flies in, with the department then contacting and interviewing them within 24 hours to determine if they need to be quarantined.

All of the 60 other cases in the us had traveled from overseas or had been in close contact with those who traveled.

Reiterating guidance from the CDC and other health agencies, the California health department said the primary defense to keep the coronavirus from spreading includes basic steps such as washing hands with soap and water and avoiding close contact with anyone who is sick.

Park said while the state health department sends samples to the CDC for the coronavirus test, doctors also should check patients for other illnesses, such as the flu.

As weeks passed, the problem became more and more frustrating, said Scott Becker, the chief executive of the Association of Public Health Laboratories. To date, there have been no confirmed cases in NY, though almost 200 people have been placed in voluntary quarantine statewide after traveling to China.

California officials have been preparing for the possibility that community spread of the virus might first surface there.

The virus, which originated in Wuhan, China has killed 2,772 people and sickened more than 81,000 as it has spread around the globe, reaching every continent except Antarctica. That person has no known contact with an infected person.

Health and Human Services workers interacted with Americans evacuated from the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in China without proper training for infection control or appropriate protective gear, according to a whistle-blower complaint. The AP is exclusively responsible for all content.
