CDC confirmed that a woman who recently traveled to China and returned through Chicago airport spread the virus to her husband. Now with confirmed 6 cases, Illinois is attempting to verify 21 possible cases. CDC is verifying 92 more people for possible coronavirus infection. CDC already cleared 68 as testing negative for the coronavirus.

There are currently 7,800 confirmed infections globally, with most in China. CDC does not see a need to wear masks to protect oneself in public but did advise washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds and to avoid close interaction with people who were sick.
