CHICAGO -- A second case of Wuhan coronavirus in the United States has been identified in Chicago, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday in a press briefing.

CNN is reporting that the patient is a Chicago resident in her 60s.

She is in isolation at a hospital in Chicago.

The patient flew from Wuhan to Chicago on Jan. 13.

She was not ill while traveling and health authorities do not think she spread the virus during that time.

Health authorities say she has had limited close contacts since returning to Chicago.

Sixty-three people from 22 states are under investigation for the virus, health officials said.

The CDC confirmed the first case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus in the United States earlier this week in the state of Washington.

That patient also recently returned from Wuhan, China.
