The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) confirmed that a coronavirus infected flight attendant travelled a Korea-US route. KCDC said “she took a flight after showing symptoms, and we are investigating people who had contact with the employee on the flight”. It’s believed that she worked on Korean Air’s flight KE017 from Seoul’s Incheon airport to Los Angeles on Feb. 19, and on the return flight KE012 on Feb. 20.
Yesterday, US CDC said the exposure of one coronavirus patient’s exposure is unknown. “It’s possible this could be an instance of community spread of Covid-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States.” President Donald Trump tried to down play the overall situation and said “because of all we’ve done the risk to the American people remains very low.”
