CDC confirms second case of coronavirus in the U.S.

U.S. health officials Friday confirmed a second person infected with the new coronavirus that has sickened more than 800 and killed 26 as Chinese authorities shut down more cities to contain the illness.

The person is a Chicago woman in her 60s who traveled back from Wuhan Jan. 13. She has been placed in isolation at an unnamed hospital, said Dr. Allison Arwady, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been investigating 63 suspected cases of the coronavirus in 22 states. Of those 63, two tested positive and 11 tested negative. The CDC did not release a list of the states.
