It appears that the coronavirus is about to wreak havoc in California. It's being reported that there have been multiple cases in which the individuals had no contact with China or anyone that had recently been to China.
So chances are that there is someone who is infected with the virus out on the streets of California right now spreading the virus to whoever they may come in contact with.
Let's hope that the person stays to himself and does no continue spreading the virus.
“A new case of the novel coronavirus confirmed in Northern California is possibly the first instance in the U.S. of community spread, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.
The Solano County patient “had no known exposure to the virus through travel or close contact with a known infected individual,” according to the California Department of Public Health. The patient is being treated in Sacramento County.
The patient is at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, according to a statement from the hospital. The statement was posted on behalf of UC Davis Medical Center Interim CEO Brad Simmons and UC Davis Health Vice-Chancellor Dr. David Lubarsky.
According to the statement, the patient was transferred to the hospital on Feb. 19.
“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 statement said. “Since the patient arrived with a suspected viral infection, our care teams have been taking the proper infection prevention (contact droplet) precautions during the patient’s stay.”
“This would be the first known instance of person-to-person transmission in the general public in the United States,” CDPH said in a statement. “Previously known instances of person-to-person transmission in the United States include one instance in Chicago, Illinois, and one in San Benito County, California. Both cases were after close, prolonged interaction with a family member who returned from Wuhan, China and had tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by novel coronavirus. As of today, including this case, California has had seven travel-related cases, one close contact case, and now one community transmission.”
California's massive homeless epidemic is going to make things so much worse than they would have been had they actually worked toward
