US Coronavirus Patient With Unknown Exposure on Ventilator in Hospital

29 Février, 2020, 01:23 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

"When the patient arrived, the patient had already been intubated, was on a ventilator, and given droplet protection orders because of an undiagnosed and suspected viral condition", the University of California Davis Medical Center said in a statement.

Newsom also addressed the announcement on Wednesday that a case of community spread coronavirus had occurred in California, in which the patient had neither traveled out of the country or been in contact with an infected individual. A number of repatriated citizens from the Diamond Princess cruise ship are now under quarantine there, and in the last week, four new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed from this group, according to ABC 10. The other 15 were either travelers coming back from China or spouses of travelers.

Solano County is home to Travis Air Force Base, where hundreds of Americans repatriated from China, and others brought home from the Diamond Princess Cruise ship have been kept in quarantine.

Doctors at the UC Davis Medical Center said they asked the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to test the woman for the virus on February 19.

"This is not the first COVID-19 patient we have treated", the statement continued, "and because of the precautions we have had in place since this patient's arrival, we believe there has been minimal potential for exposure here at UC Davis Medical Center".

Two other patients have become infected through person-to-person transmission but both had close, prolonged interaction with a family member who had been to China, where the virus emerged late previous year.

The U.S. outbreak of the coronavirus may have taken a new turn this week, as health officials examine a new case with an unknown origin.

The new case of Covid-19 infection in California brings the total number of infected cases in the United States to 15.

The move was welcomed by public health officials, who have been frustrated by the testing snag.

While the USA has seen a relatively few number of cases, health experts say the latest development marks a possible turning point, with fears the virus could spread further.

Newsom said more than 8,400 people are being monitored in 49 local jurisdictions. Providence St. Joseph Health operates 51 hospitals and more than 1,000 clinics across the country.

But health officials say that preparing for the possibility of community spread of the virus may prove hard. He said the CDC can test about 400 specimens per day.

The CDC is urging Americans to be prepared for a possible outbreak.

Park said she has seen physicians sending in a specimen and a form with no information on it.

"No country should assume it wouldn't get cases", Ghebreyesus said, according to ABC News.

More than 80 000 people have been infected worldwide and 2 800 have died, mostly in China, where the virus originated late previous year.
