In rapidly escalating developments with the spread of the Wuhan-linked novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today announced the first US case, involving a man who got sick after returning to Washington state from Wuhan and contacted medical authorities.

At a CDC media briefing today, health officials said the man, who is reported to be in stable condition, didn’t visit any markets or have any contact with sick patients during his stay in Wuhan.

The CDC said it is expanding health checks in travelers from Wuhan to more US airports. (See today’s other CIDRAP News story on international 2019-nCoV developments.)
