  • Two women wear face masks as they walk on the sidewalk in New York City's Chinatown on February 13. The United States has 19 confirmed or presumptive cases of coronavirus

The patient apparently contracted the virus through community transmission, meaning the patient hadn't traveled to any other country known to have coronavirus cases and was not in contact with anyone with a confirmed case, Oregon Live reported.

An additional 47 cases have been confirmed among people recently repatriated from overseas, either from the Diamond Princess cruise ship quarantined in Japan or from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak, according to the CDC. There are more than 76,000 reported cases of the disease in mainland China and almost 2,000 in other nations.

Cases are presumptive until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirm a positive test result. Similar cases have been reported in California and Washington.

The school will be closed Monday to allow for three days of "deep cleaning" that will begin Saturday, health officials said.

OHA epidemiologists are working closely with public health investigators at Washington County Department of Health and Human Services to identify close contacts of the case.

OR health authorities planned to spend the weekend trying to find everyone the unidentified person, who was in a hospital, had been in contact with.

Allen told reporters in a conference call that people can plan for possible quarantines by ensuring they have a two-week supply of food and water and by making arrangements with their employer to work from home.

"Our first concern is for this individual, to make sure they're being cared for and is able to recover", the health authority's director, Patrick Allen, said in a statement.

The case "highlights the vulnerability of the nation's hospitals to this virus", the union said.

The school district announced Friday it would be closing Forest Hills Elementary through next Wednesday, March 4, and that all activities at all school district facilities would be canceled this weekend. She is now under isolation at home.

Both patients weren't seriously ill.

There are at least 62 cases in the United States so far, a lot of them linked to travel overseas. More than 80,000 people have been infected worldwide and about 3,000 have died - majority in China, where the epidemic started.

But health officials aren't taking any chances.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a closed-door briefing in the U.S. House of Representatives that sustained spread of the coronavirus meant there would be many more infections in the United States, according to a source.

State officials said about 67 passengers sent to Travis Air Force Base in Solano County were California residents, and 15 of them tested positive for the virus. "If the coronavirus comes to OR, we will be ready". "The person in now appropriate isolation and appropriate care".

Not to be outdone, Washington state officials announced just over an hour later that they had identified two new cases - one of which is a high school student with no travel history.

This week, the Oregon Health Authority started providing weekly updates about the number of people being monitored and what households can do to stop coronavirus from spreading. Brown created a coronavirus response team that includes Oregon State Police, Oregon Military Department and Oregon Health Authority.

The virus can cause fever, coughing, wheezing and pneumonia. They also advised the public to wash their hands and cover their mouths when they cough.
