U.S. Now Has Five Confirmed Cases of Wuhan Coronavirus with More Suspected Cases Under Investigation

[From AMA Morning Rounds 01/27/20]

USA Today (1/26, Bacon) reports there are now five confirmed cases of the Wuhan coronavirus in the U.S. and more suspected cases under investigation. The five confirmed cases have been reported in Washington, Chicago, Arizona, and two in southern California.

CNN (1/26, Karimi) reports that all five cases “had recently traveled to Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak.”

Meanwhile, STAT (1/24, Begley) reports scientists around the world are analyzing the Wuhan coronavirus, also known as 2019-nCoV, and have already sequenced the DNA extracted from almost two dozen samples taken from different patients. The scientists hope to better understand the virus in order to contain the virus and potentially develop a vaccine.
