The new patient, of undisclosed age and gender, is the twelfth confirmed case in the U.S. after testing positive for the virus at University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison.
Wisconsin health officials described the latest patient only as an adult who had traveled to China to celebrate the Chinese New Year and was exposed while there.
It's unclear if the patient would have been aware that these contacts were sick.
Commercial flights to China have ground to a halt amid health concerns and plummeting demand, and planes carrying American evacuees from the country landed Wednesday and Thursday at military air fields where they will be under two-week quarantine and observation.
She says the state is working with local health departments, the federal Centers for Disease Control and other health care partners. More details about the person's location will be coming later from the local health department, said Dr. Ryan Westergaard, chief medical officer in the Department of Health Services Bureau of Communicable Disease.
The first case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Wisconsin
Overall, the state says 10 people have been tested for the coronavirus in Wisconsin. Per protocol for the virus, the person will remain in isolation for 14 days. A man tested positive at a Madison hospital.
So far, 10 people in Wisconsin have been tested for coronavirus.
It remains when exactly or into what airport the newest coronavirus patient arrived in the US. "That's because we're not seeing human to human transmission being sustained associated with these cases that we've seen particularly in the Midwest". As of Wednesday, the CDC had confirmed 11 cases across five states: Arizona, California, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington. At least three potential cases in Minnesota have turned up negative.
And now they're home, isolated and recovering, according to the release.
"We should not be surprised if there are cases" from the flights, said Dr Messonnier.
