NEW YORK (AP) — A new coronavirus case in California could be the first in the U.S. that has no known connection to travel abroad or another known case, a possible sign the virus is spreading in a U.S. community, health officials said.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the case Wednesday.

California officials said the person is a resident of Solano County, northeast of San Francisco, and is getting medical care in Sacramento County. They said they have begun the process of tracking down people who the patient has been in contact with, a process known as contact tracing.

Officials did not immediately release any other details.All of the 59 other cases in the U.S. had traveled from abroad or had been in close contact with those who traveled. Health officials have been on high alert for so-called community spread.Earlier U.S. cases included 14 in people who traveled back from outbreak areas in China, or their spouses; three people who were evacuated from the central China city of Wuhan; and 42 American passengers on the Diamond Princess cruise ship who were evacuated by the federal government to the U.S. from where the ship was docked in Japan.

Some of those evacuated were taken to Travis Air Force Base, which in Solano County. A number of the earlier cases have been in California, including among some of the people taken to Travis and one in which a traveler who returned to San Benito County spread it to a spouse.

California officials have been preparing for the possibility that community spread of the virus might first surface there.“We have been anticipating the potential for such a case in the U.S., and given our close familial, social and business relationships with China, it is not unexpected that the first case in the U.S. would be in California,” said Dr. Sonia Angell, Director of the California Department of Public Health and State Public Health Officer, in a statement.

The outbreak, which began in China, has infected tends of thousands of people in more than three dozen countries, with the vast majority in mainland China.The new virus is a member of the coronavirus family that can cause colds or more serious illnesses such as SARS and MERS.

The virus can cause fever, coughing, wheezing and pneumonia. Health officials think it spreads mainly from droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how the flu spreads.Officials are advising people to take steps to avoid infection with coronavirus or other respiratory infections like a cold or the flu, including washing hands with soap and water and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

Following confirmation to Supreme Court, Barrett takes 1st oath at White House

Amy Coney Barrett will replace the late liberal icon, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

It's the democrats fault for not cleaning up their homeless problem, in their states!!!! TrumpVirus First community case of covid-19 lives in same county as Travis AFB, where hundreds of Americans evacuated from China were quarantined. this is scary See what happens if a coronavirus spreads at the White House. Instantly shit!!

Maybe because of a porous border ?! your POTUSTREETS would like to take this opportunity to thank the ZOMBIES that spread HEPATITISA in sandiego that one time,for preparing daddy for the ZOMBIEAPOCALYPSE(hitting EARLIER THAN EXPECTED). whenever EARTH hits MADMAX MODE,your POTUSTREETS is READY&FIT.

Y'all just now talking about this? My Grandma had pneumonia at Christmas and my cousin said (hope it ain't that Corona they got in China)... That way Christmas. O yay, my cousin can't read. How he know about this and y'all just now talking about it? now THIS SHIT IS GETTING OUT OF HAND,WHO! your POTUSTREETS will be INSIDE THE CONDO,though.

Im reading that the virus targets men , smokers and the elderly. The respiratory syncytial virus also targets the elderly. Hmmmm, interesting ! The elderly need to be very proactive about how they are being treated and targeted. Must be because he eats bats. And Mike Pence iss in charge of it we're all gonna die.

Could be in the food supply. Splenda is made in China aishahhasnie Try asking that patients in Sacramento if she received a package my mail from China or made in China.This is the only way the Coronavirus could spread worldwide without individual direct contact from a person. It’s in the mail system. China just closed manufacturing this Tuesday.

He lives in Solano country: that’s where the Diamond Princess passengers are being held at Travis AFB. Including people exposed to the 14 positive cases transferred in the same plane against CDC warnings. Get Face Mask Against Corona Virus Now, Protect Yourself From All Viruses: California is a cesspool of diseases thanks to their policies.

AstroHardin Transmitted through the mail. Carful what you buy and where it’s mailed from. eBay has millions of items shipped from Wuhan city daily. Virus by mail. That sounds suspect He obviously was in contact with a traveler who didn't realize they were sick , escaping Detection . This is why this virus is dangerous.

RATS! Maybe? We have to think like the Plague Inc. game... what's usually the next thing to unlock when trying to spread it? See how the coverage compares against other news outlets on Ground News coronavirus COVID19 Medical Sacramento Perhaps it got out of an laboratory in the region. Airborne ... COVID19 to chartered flights from China and Japan: 'Thanks for the free lift!'

Anything from California is to be taken lightly! The politicians lie all the time! So let them deal with this! Wonder if the person has received freight from China? Of course it is California Bioweapon Package from China? Who let the sick into the US, Trump. Let me know when it is a sign. There have been over 10 thousand people died of the flu in the US. Probably many of them died of the coronavirus, we just don't know it. The CDC only tested 426 people, don't they? Image what if faults like CDC happened in China, people would criticize the CCP did it on purpose.

Trump ain't care as long as he ain't getting the virus. How did that happen? Wait what Better check this w the illegals he has had contact with that came illegally crossing into US from MX. Does that mean Trump will limit his golfing? One case in Japan no history in China but just come back from Hawaii. No contact to Asian people, and his sequence about the virus is older than the sequence in ALL CHINA. that means he is infected by other sources. Meanwhile, America found all five kinds sequence about it. Lol

Latest CoronaVirusUpdates the world needed from experts buried under the realDonaldTrump news hour. Also, Sebelius on allinwithchris seemed quite concerned about the death of healthy non elderly, like Chinese whistleblower Dr. Li Wenliang. coronavirususa not just4 elderly. If we had better healthcare people could actually get tested.

Maybe they ate a bat Stace_RNresists It's kinda ironic that you are about to lose Medicare and Medicaid all while you have the man in charge of it is responsible for an HIV epidemic in Indiana. The evanhackicals who scream abt the end times may also b the 1st 1s to buy into some miracle cure peddled by their preferred snake oil merchant. All for the low low price of 199.99, if you call now a dedicated prayer warrior will pray with you for your own mantle of protection.

MarthaSugalski That’s very scary. TrumpAdministration acting on Corona globalism kills. Interesting. The person who contracted the coronavirus from Lord knows where resides in Solano County, the SAME county where Travis AFB is located, the SAME AF base where 234 people evacuated from China were quarantined AND released on Feb 18 & 20...🤔🤔🤔

😷 ItsNotPersonal0 Actually, it was Nancy Pelosi and she was sober. Given that nobody has ever seen her that way before, they presumed that she was infected. We don’t believe youuuuu Derrick_NOLA Everyone should follow health experts on contagious viruses because I don’t trust our government to give us accurate, timely information.

“Could Be”. “Journalism” 🙄 evil4life101 Hope this bug doesn’t go airborne It’s 70F right now in that area. Diddnt Trump say it wouldn’t spread in the warm weather? There must’ve been a reason to test them for this virus? Why ? It probably walked across the southern border; the same ones democrats want wide-open to allow whoever in. No loss.

How is it possible to catch the virus if no contact with anyone who has/had the virus. It doesn’t just pop up and if it is airborne many others would be effected. Or am I missunderstanding this? California needs to clean up its streets. They are a cesspool breading ground for diseases now. CA politicians need to get their butts home & do some work. Their politics put people at risk.

Nothing to worry about, religious extremist and Trumpian ass sniffer VP Mike Pence is on the case, I imagine he'll have this prayed away within the next day or so coronavirus has been weaponized by Democrats and the media. This is their only way to make political gains - hope for mass death in America and blame Trump.

It's funny how people on here are blaming Trump for some reason. MarkSwartz3 I don’t consider California a US community. I’m sure realDonaldTrump is cool with this. Liberal elitist SpeakerPelosi loving Californians. He’s thinking if he can take out California & NY with coronavirus, he might have a chance of winning.

Ohhhh no!!! Let’s see, how many have died from the flu this year in California vs the corona virus.... probably someone stepped in a pile of human poop. JonLemire Taking bets on whose “prediction” will be proven more accurate - Trump who seems to think we’ll be fine-everything is under control or the CDC who said things could get bad here.

Stahhhhhhhp Someone’s lying. Optimist2thend Wow! Finally coming to the reality that the virus has been spreading faster and earlier than the MSM! 67 people in Oregon are being monitored for the virus This is impossible. Trump insists the virus will be wiped out in the warmer weather of spring months. Solano Country high temperature are currently in the upper-70s to low-80s.

The food... MarthaSugalski Holly Jesus Why don’t you all just deny it or call it fake news. That will help make it go away. Way to go Pence. Wait 24 hours to make sure it isn’t more bullshit being spread by a corrupt media. You should really be careful what you report in case you start a panic you can't stop. I hope the media takes their accuracy about this virus very seriously.

Well, here we go. Irresponsible. What is true: The source of infection is not YET known. Stop reporting 'possible' scenarios, and report ACTUAL facts. Many of the cases in California are undocumented. 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨😷😷😷🤒🤒🤧🤧🥵🥵 Unfortunately the press has lied and made up enough stories, it is now impossible to believe anything anymore.

Well there goes California! No way are the host coming forward. They are probably illegals or those coming in for the birthright citizenship etc. .No way are they going to chance going back. But what MAGAts really want to know (because their King told them to) is how their APPL holdings are doing. Did this latest infected was around the path of that infected woman evacuated from WuhanCoronavirusOutbreak that our the hospital let go by mistake ?

Please donate and share! 😳😳😳 Ummmmm they had to have contact with an infected person. I can't imagine how reassuring it must feel knowing that Mike Pence and Donald Trump 'have this'. I envy American folks. 😔 This means there is a “typhoid marry” in CA. Yet the 2 bumbling idiots realDonaldTrump & VP want us to believe all is well. Sadly, with Trump’s ignorance and Pence’s history with Indiana HIV....this country faces a very grave danger! coronavirususa coronavirus

No worries, it'll all clear up in April Well there goes California! So many illegals etc there the host or hosts surely are in hiding. No way are they coming forward or going back. Uh oh RushLimbauh, what if it's in the fentanyl?!?! That is good information to know. However there is still many unanswered questions to show how good or bad the spreading is in America.

AlexNowrasteh Here’s hoping for a false positive! This is the zombie virus we need No known contact with a carrier patient? That's not good. 17000 dead Americans after the N1H1 virus takes its toll on America in 2009 and 10. No sense of panic from the media. And definitely no blaming of Obama. 0 American deaths from this - 'Trump is irresponsible!'. 🙄

Most likely a illegal came in contact with the person. No doubt this will eventually run rampant in the shi*hole that is CA. Someone said it spreads through Twitter. Dead Do you think that there should be a 2021 Tokyo Olympics maybe test the piles of shit on the sidewalks infection control In California there’s a lot of Asians traveling to Asia and comin back!

It’s ok this stable genius has it all figured out. Patient zero. we're all gonna die Yes California! Watch out for the 💩.. Lives by Travis Air Force Base It was always going to be CA first. Wait until it reaches the homeless population. That should go well. Has anyone told Trump? He thinks we’re almost down to zero patients.

Breaking: Coronavirus can be spread through FakeNews So this is likely tied to the supply chain as in she consumed something infected or it is also likely that she touched something that was harboring the virus. Or it could NOT be. Let’s stop the panic reporting “How the person acquired the respiratory disease is unknown.”

So it’s someone that likely got it from someone associated with Travis AFB. California... Who's surprised... Unknown origin? LMFAO! Are you familiar with chem trails!! This isn't verified you fear mongers. WTAF? VP here you go Trump fired our pandemic response team. Oh boy... 🙄 Perhaps someone working with the quarantined, and therefore infected but not symptomatic, came into contact with this person? We’ll see

Is this the same person/patient ? Of course it’s California. Anyone give any thoughts on random testing 🤔 And there’s a start of the media incited fear
