Coronavirus outbreak: Second confirmed case announced in New York

Thursday, 05 Mar, 2020

In the capital of Seoul, drive-thru virus testing centers began operating, with workers dressed head-to-toe in white protective suits leaning into cars with mouth swabs, a move meant to limit contact with possible carriers of the illness. Others include people who attended a local synagogue, he said. "You do the best you can".

The company in query used to be mentioned to be a boutique seven-lawyer observe in Manhattan positioned throughout 42nd Street from Grand Central Terminal, the place the affected person reportedly commuted at the Metro-North Railroad from a house in New Rochelle.

The initiative paves the way for low-priced emergency room, urgent care, and hospital visits for patients anxious that they may have contracted the virus.

At a press conference on Tuesday, de Blasio and Cuomo said detectives are looking for "prolonged contact", adding that the global medical community believes you can not contract the virus "through casual contact", adding, "so the subway is not the issue". The neighbor is also under self-quarantine at home. That man's neighbor also tested positive after taking the lawyer to the doctor in a auto.

A 50-year-old man from Westchester County has been hospitalized. De Blasio said two people he had close contact with _ a roommate and a friend _ were being tested.

All classes and operations at the other campuses would continue as normal, the university said.

The Wilf campus is the school's main campus in Washington Heights, Manhattan, housing the men's undergraduate school. Congregants who attended services there on February 22 or a funeral or bat mitzvah there on February 23 have been told to self-quarantine until at least March 8.

Earlier today Cuomo said as many as 1,000 people in Westchester County are self-quarantining now. This is not the first time we've dealt with this situation. "When we first heard of the Coronavirus it seemed so remote. And we got the testing results back", Cuomo said.

He also announced they're going to recall SUNY and CUNY students from study overseas programs in five countries - China, Italy, Japan, Iran, South Korea. In addition, neighbor who drove him to the hospital also tested positive.

According to an all campus alert sent by the university on Tuesday, the second confirmed case of coronavirus in NY - a Westchester County attorney in his 50s - is the father of a male undergraduate student at Yeshiva.

"Those are the facts", Cuomo said. The woman's husband tested negative for the virus, Cuomo announced.

As he has in recent days, the governor sought to reassure the public that the disease is often passed by close contact, not casual contact like riding in the same subway vehicle as a person who may be sick.

The International Olympic Committee said Tuesday it was pushing ahead with plans for the Tokyo Olympics kicking off in July, ensuring it was "fully committed to" the event despite virus fears.

He says "we are concerned that countries' abilities to respond are being compromised by the severe and increasing disruption to the global supply of personal protective equipment, caused by rising demand, hoarding and misuse".
