Doctors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the woman is hospitalized to prevent the spread of the virus and is well, and the people she had close contact with are being monitored.

Dr. Nancy Messonier of the CDC said the risk to the US public. UU. It remains low, but it is likely that more cases will be diagnosed in the next few days, since the virus appears to have an incubation period of two weeks.
