Two New England Residents Being Tested For Coronavirus
According to WMTW, two New Hampshire residents who recently spent time at Wuhan City, China are being tested for the potentially deadline virus.
The two are being tested because, in addition to traveling to the epicenter of the outbreak, they have displayed some of the symptoms of the virus. Health officials say if the test comes back positive, they will let the public know.
According to Wikipedia, these symptoms include: fever, fatigue, dry cough, shortness of breath, and respiratory distress. It is unknown exactly how easily the virus spreads, but person to person transmission is possible.
Over the last month and a half, the virus has sickened nearly 3,000 people and killed over 80 people. Five people in the United States have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. 100 other people are currently being tested.
