3rd USA case of new coronavirus confirmed in California

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said Sunday the infected person presented themselves for care once they noticed that they were not feeling well and is now receiving medical attention.

Global concern grows as the outbreak spreads. Its spread has come amid China's busiest travel period of the year, when millions crisscross the country or head overseas for the Lunar New Year holiday.

President Xi Jinping on January 25 said at a Communist Party leadership meeting that China was "faced with the grave situation of an accelerating spread of the new coronavirus", which has killed at least 56 people infected another 1,975 in the country.

Authorities in the US, Nepal, France, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan confirm cases over the following days.

The patient is in good condition in isolation in a local hospital, according to the network.

As the Canadian officials said, the man is his 50s and recently flew from Wuhan, China to Guangzhou, China and then on to Toronto on January 23.

The second US case of the new coronavirus was confirmed in Chicago on Friday and before that, the first case was confirmed by the CDC in Washington state on Tuesday. It also said it would transport other US citizens who are at the greatest risk, but it warned that it would have "limited capacity" for private individuals.

"If there is insufficient ability to transport everyone who expresses interest", the alert added, "priority will be given to individuals at greater risk from coronavirus".

The French Consulate also was considering an evacuation of its nationals from the city.

Beijing suspended long-distance bus services into and out of the capital beginning Sunday.

Americans in Wuhan are being evacuated to San Francisco.

Japan was also making preparations to fly its nationals out of Wuhan.

But researchers in Beijing said the Wuhan coronavirus could be a novel virus rather than an evolved version of Sars. Shanghai Disneyland, which expected 100,000 visitors daily through the Lunar New Year holidays, has already closed.

Despite her fears and perceived lack of information about Wuhan coronavirus, she does not plan to leave the city in an evacuation flight organized by the State Department. Agence France-Presse reported that a foreign ministry official told them that 430 Japanese were in the province of Hubei.

Cities have been quarantined and China is building a 1,000-bed hospital for those who have contracted the virus.

"I would not be surprised if there are some more cases.it's highly likely that we may see them some more".

The virus is part of a large family of coronaviruses.

The virus can cause fever, coughing, wheezing and pneumonia. He had previously been in Wuhan, where the virus is thought to have originated in an illegal wildlife market.

China announced a ban on the temporary sale of bushmeat through which the virus may have been transmitted to humans. They also called on the public to refrain from eating wild animal meat.
