Clark County’s 2nd alleged coronavirus case is a 70-year-old woman | coronavirus

CLARK COUNTY (FOX5) – A second alleged positive case of new coronavirus has been identified in Clark County, according to the Southern Nevada Health District.

The patient is a woman in her seventies and is currently detained in an isolated hospital, the southern Nevada health district said in a statement Monday. The patient’s close contacts were asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, SNHD said. He reportedly traveled to the state before developing symptoms, according to the release.

The first coronavirus case in Clark County was identified as a man in his fifties who recently traveled to the state of Texas and Washington. The man remains in serious condition at the VA Healthcare System in North Las Vegas.

Washoe County reported two suspected positive cases, one involving a 30-year-old man who recently traveled to Santa Clara but showed no symptoms on the trip.

According to the CDC, commercial labs will soon begin testing for COVID-19. However, positive test results aren’t disclosed to the Health District, SNHD noted in a statement Monday. All suspected positive cases must be tested by the Centers for Disease Control for further confirmation.
