Third Florida coronavirus surfaces in Hillsborough County in sister of infected woman

Third Florida coronavirus surfaces in Hillsborough County in sister of infected woman

Such activities include monitoring persons under investigation ("PUI"), as defined by the CDC, for COVID-19 for at least 14 days, which includes risk assessments and temperature checks.

"We received, which we expected, a presumptive positive test for COVID-19". Of the two confirmed cases of the virus in Florida, one case is located in Manatee County and the other case is in Hillsborough County. She is a California resident but is being isolated in Florida.

DeSantis's announcement Tuesday came after two cases were confirmed Monday involving patients in Hillsborough and Manatee counties. One has a history of travel to Italy, while officials don't where the second contracted the virus, raising the spectre of person-to-person spread.

According to the latest situation report from the World Health Organization (data reported as of March 1st), there are 87,137 confirmed cases globally with about 1,739 newly reported cases. College and universities should be referring to CDC guidelines, as they are large gathering areas for students who could have been traveling.

DeSantis ordered Department of Health Secretary and state Surgeon General Scott Rivkees to issue a public health emergency Sunday night after the first two cases emerged.

And while state officials say the overall immediate threat is low, the state remains under a public health emergency, issued by Governor Ron DeSantis. "It tends to have a most deleterious effect on people that have underlying health conditions or that are elderly".

"We believe it was someone who was traveling in Asia, probably in China", DeSantis told reporters at the Orange County Department of Health.

A third case, announced Tuesday, is connected to the Tampa-area woman.

COVID-19 was first reported in Wuhan, China, on December 31.

At Governor Ron DeSantis' news conference Monday, he expressed concern over some of the most fragile Floridians. "I mean, it really does work if you follow that".

But he said more cases are likely.

"Those are still considered "presumptive positives" at this point; although I do think they're doing it right", the governor said.
