The individual is a resident of Solano County and is receiving medical care in nearby Sacramento County, the California Department of Public Health said.
Не, есть еще вероятность, что телепортировалась в Ухань и съела летучую мышь. Вероятный, случай передачи от человека к человеку, ага.
"The individual had no known exposure to the virus through travel or close contact with a known infected individual," CDPH officials said."Upon admission, our team asked public health officials if this case could be COVID-19," UC Davis Health said. "We requested COVID-19 testing by the CDC, since neither Sacramento County nor CDPH is doing testing for coronavirus at this time. Since the patient did not fit the existing CDC criteria for COVID-19, a test was not immediately administered. UC Davis Health does not control the testing process.""On Sunday, the CDC ordered COVID-19 testing of the patient and the patient was put on airborne precautions and strict contact precautions, because of our concerns about the patient's condition," UC Davis Health said. "Today, the CDC confirmed the patient's test was positive." "There has been criticism of the handling of her case, as she was reportedly hospitalized for four days before a coronavirus test was administered. UC Davis confirmed a lag time between her admission and the test."
Касательно того, почему протестировали эту пациентку, хотя она нигде не была и ни с кем не контактировала, и, вроде бы, не попадала под "правила для тестирвоания от СДС". Картина ее болезни к сожалению, не вызывала сомнений, и лечить ее надо было с уверенностью что не будет допущено заражение в госпитале. Это была пациентка в критическом состоянии, с искусственной вентиляцией легких. Судя по всему, с 16 февраля. Или даже ранее, тк 16 СДС дало добро на тест. Employees of UC Davis Health in Sacramento received this email...:
"Today we learned a patient we are treating here at UC Davis Medical Center for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is being investigated by the CDC as possibly the first patient to have received the infection from exposure in the community. This patient was transferred to us from another Northern California hospital on Wednesday, Feb 19. When the patient arrived, the patient had already been intubated, was on a ventilator, and given droplet protection orders because of an undiagnosed and suspected viral condition. Since the patient arrived with a suspected viral infection, our care teams have been taking the proper infection prevention (contact droplet) precautions during the patient’s stay. Upon admission, our team asked public health officials if this case could be COVID-19. We requested COVID-19 testing by the CDC, since neither Sacramento County nor CDPH is doing testing for coronavirus at this time. Since the patient did not fit the existing CDC criteria for COVID-19, a test was not immediately administered. UC Davis Health does not control the testing process. On Sunday (16 февраля), the CDC ordered COVID-19 testing of the patient and the patient was put on airborne precautions and strict contact precautions, because of our concerns about the patient’s condition. Today (20) the CDC confirmed the patient’s test was positivе.This is not the first COVID-19 patient we have treated, and because of the precautions we have had in place since this patient’s arrival, we believe there has been minimal potential for exposure here at UC Davis Medical Center. We are proud of our health care workers who have been working to care for this patient and are committed to saving this patient’s life. Just as when a health care worker has a small chance of exposure to other illnesses, such as TB or pertussis, we are following standard CDC protocols for determination of exposure and surveillance. So, out of an abundance of caution, in order to assure the health and safety of our employees, we are asking a small number of employees to stay home and monitor their temperature. We are handling this in the same way we manage other diseases that require airborne precautions and monitoring. We are in constant communication with the state health department and the CDC and Sacramento County Public Health about the optimal management of this patient and possible employee exposures. As we regularly handle patients with infectious diseases, we have robust infection control protocols in place to handle this patient and others with more frequently seen infectious diseases. In this case, we are dedicated to providing the best care possible for this patient and continuing to protect the health of our employees who care for them.There are a number of informational resources, including a Q&A and background information on COVID-19 on The Insider and the UC Davis Health website.

Поскольку картина такова, что на 1 критического приходится примерно несколько тяжелых и еще большее количество средней и легкой тяжести, и там, где появляются тяжелые пациенты или смерти, "внезапно", в Солано округе уже пристуствует "вспышка". Солано- это округ, где находится военная база, куда эвакуировали сначала из Китая, а потом с "Принцессы".
"Solano County is home to Travis Air Force Base, where 172 Americans were brought Feb. 16 for quarantine after they were exposed to COVID-19 as passengers aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan. At least five of those passengers quarantined at Travis AFB in Fairfield have since tested positive for the coronavirus and are being treated at hospitals in and around Solano County, including in Napa, Sonoma and Contra Costa counties."
Далее, как США контролирует ситуацию:
"Federal health workers were given inadequate training and protective gear when they were sent to care for Americans evacuated to March Air Reserve Base from the epicenter of the new coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, according to a whistleblower's complaint.
According to the whistleblower, HHS staff at March ARB in Riverside County, and at Travis Air Force Base in Solano County may have been exposed to the coronavirus due to the lax safety measures.
The workers had face-to-face contact with evacuees but had no training for wearing protective gear, and were never tested for coronavirus themselves.
The workers in question included about 14 personnel from the Administration for Children and Families sent to March ARB, and another 13 sent to Travis AFB.
Meanwhile, across California, 8,400 people are being monitored for symptoms of coronavirus, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Thursday.
A total of 33 people in California have tested positive for the virus, Newsom said — far higher than the CDC's listing of 14.
С 16 февраля 2 жителя Эврики, округ Хумбольт, вернувшиеся из Китая, имеют подтвержденный диагноз "Ковид-19" и находятся на домашнем карантине.
"The first case of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, has been confirmed in a Humboldt County resident, and “a close contact” with symptoms is also being tested, local public health officials announced Thursday (21 февраля)."
Но СДС так "прозрачно" пишет о случаях в США, что отследить информацию на его странице- просто невозможно.
Плюс зараженных и больных периодически отправляют туда-сюда в разные штаты, по непонятным причинам, что, естественно, тоже не отражено на сайте СДС.
Так что уж не поймешь, кто, где, когда
Two people with a confirmed case of the new coronavirus who were taken to Travis Air Force Base after they were flown to the U.S. from Asia are now in Bay Area hospitals — one in Marin County and one in Sonoma County.
"The CDC has transferred one positive case of a repatriated patient to San Mateo County. We will not be releasing any further details at this time."
