New York and California are reportedly monitoring over 9,000 people for the coronavirus that originated in China as the United States prepares for a potential outbreak that officials say could boom over night.
“The Health Department says 700 people in the state have been asked to voluntarily self-isolate for two weeks,” CBS New York reported. “That includes 83 people in Nassau County, 29 in Suffolk County, and eight in Westchester.”
“California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Thursday that 33 people have tested positive for COVID-19 and the state is currently monitoring at least 8,400 others,” CNBC reported, which comes “a day after U.S. health officials confirmed the first possible community transmission of the coronavirus in a Solano County resident.”
Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, an adjunct professor of epidemiology at the University of California Los Angeles who previously worked for the CDC, told The Daily Beast that Americans should expect an overnight boom in coronavirus cases across the U.S. but should not panic over it.
