The more we learn about this mysterious new coronavirus, the more frightening this outbreak becomes. As you will see below, we are now being told that the incubation period for this virus “can be around two weeks”. That means that there could be countless numbers of people all over the globe that are carrying this virus around without even knowing it. In fact, a woman that returned to Chicago from China on January 13th was not exhibiting any symptoms when she arrived. So even if she had been “screened” at the airport, they would have let her through anyway. But now it has been confirmed that she has the Chinese coronavirus, and she is in the hospital at this moment…
A Chicago woman who returned from a visit to China earlier this month has been diagnosed with the respiratory coronavirus that has sickened hundreds in China, according to the Chicago Department of Public Health.
The woman, who is in her 60s, remained hospitalized Friday and her condition had been stabilized, said Dr. Allison Arwady, the commissioner for the Chicago Department of Public Health, on a news call with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The woman traveled to Wuhan, China, in late December and on Jan. 13 returned to Chicago, Arwady said.
Could it be possible that there are many more people that have flown from China to the United States in recent weeks that will become “confirmed cases” in the days ahead?
And meanwhile, how many others are they potentially exposing to the virus?
According to the CBS affiliate in Chicago, health officials are now telling us that the “incubation period for some can be around two weeks”…
According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, the patient is in her 60s and traveled to Wuhan in late December. She flew back to Chicago on Jan. 13.
Officials said she did not exhibit symptoms when she arrived. The incubation period for some can be around two weeks.
That should definitely send a chill down your spine.
Some people could literally be walking around for two weeks before they even realize that they have the virus. That makes it an ideal disease to spread around the globe very rapidly.
Here in the United States, this outbreak could soon explode. According to the CDC, “63 patients in 22 states” are currently being evaluated…
Nationwide, more than 2,000 people had been screened for the virus as of Thursday, and 63 patients in 22 states were being investigated Friday because of possible signs of the virus, according to the CDC.
And we have just learned that this virus has officially reached Europe. The following comes from CNBC…
France confirmed on Friday its first two cases of the Wuhan coronavirus, with one patient being hospitalized in Paris and the other in the southwestern city of Bordeaux.
Health Minister Agnes Buzyn told a news conference these were the first two confirmed cases in Europe and that more cases were likely to occur in France.
Subsequently, officials announced that a third case has now been confirmed in France.
