According to CNN, a new case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Southern California. It is the third recorded case in the United States as the fast-moving virus spreads worldwide.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified Orange County health officials Saturday that a potential case of coronavirus tested positive.
The person who tested positive traveled from Wuhan, China — the epicenter of the outbreak — and is in isolation and in “good condition” at a local hospital, the Orange County Health Care Agency said in a statement.
State and federal officials are following up with anyone who may have had close contact with the person and is at risk of infection.
