CDC SAYS CORONAVIRUS SPREADS FOR FIRST TIME IN U.S.

NBC NEWS just reported the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported today that a close contact of one of the patients in the U.S. with coronavirus has been infected with the illness, the first evidence that the new virus has spread person-to-person in this country.

The new patient lives with a Chicago woman in her 60’s who was diagnosed after returning last month from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak that’s now sickened upward of 8,000 people.

There have been 6 confirmed cases in the U.S. and no deaths, but at least 170 people have died in China.

This is a developing story.
