Patient Diagnosed with Coronavirus in Orange County, California

The third case of the deadly coronavirus has been detected in the U.S. and it’s right in Disneyland’s backyard.

Officials confirm Orange County, California is home to the third case in the country.

The virus was first discovered in China, infecting nearly 2,000 people, and has since spread to Europe and North America.

According to ABC7, the Orange County Health Care Agency’s Communicable Disease Control Division, which received confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the infected person is a traveler from Wuhan, China.

Wuhan is the city of origin for the disease.

The patient was transported to a local hospital and is isolated in good condition, according to officials.

Health officials said there was no evidence that person-to-person transmission has occurred in the county, and that the current risk of local transmission remains low.

Shanghai Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland have closed their parks to limit transmission in Asia– as the government looks to get a grip on the outbreak.
