One person in New York City is being tested for coronavirus, the Health Department reports. A person under 40 years old, who had spent time in what officials describe as mainland China, arrived in the city on Thursday and sought help on Friday night. “The symptoms were fever, cough and a runny nose. Like that simple. And they did the right thing for everybody else by coming in and getting care,” said NYC Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot. Early Saturday morning, an ambulance brought the patient to Bellevue, where last week, ABC’s Dr. Jennifer Ashton got a behind-the-scenes look at the isolation rooms ready for the virus – where the patient is likely staying.
