Coronavirus Patient Identified Less Than 300 Miles From East Texas

The U.S. now has its 15th coronavirus case; this time in central Texas on Lackland AFB in San Antonio. The patient has been quarantined on the Air Force base after being evacuated from the disease-ridden Wuhan, China.

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the patient was placed on a State Department-chartered flight that arrived in Texas less than a week ago on  Feb.7.

The patient is receiving professional treatment at a nearby hospital. The CDC says that more than 600 people who returned on chartered flights from Wuhan to the U.S. remain under federal quarantine, so the number of cases in the U.S. is expected to rise.

This is just another concern to add to our already dangerous flu season. Wash your hands, stay home if you’re sick, get your flu shot; everyone can do their part in helping not spread illnesses.
