3rd case of coronavirus in Ontario has been resolved

The message comes on the same day that London's one and only confirmed case of COVID-19 has now been resolved. The patient, identified as a female university student in her 20s, has been in self-isolation at home since her return from Wuhan, China on January 23.

Dr. David Williams says the patient was tested two times 24 hours apart and tested negative both times.

On Jan. 31, health officials reported that a woman in her 20s had returned from Wuhan, China, the epicentre of the viral outbreak.

Across the province, the Ministry of Health's daily tracking data show nine potential coronavirus cases under investigation. Even though she didn't have any symptoms, Middlesex-London's chief medical officer of health, Dr. Chris Mackie, credited her for going "above and beyond to protect the public" by wearing a mask and putting herself in self-isolation.

The novel strain of coronavirus, which emerged in China late past year, has killed more than 1,000 people.

Ontario's chief medical officer of health says the province has resolved a case of the novel coronavirus for the first time.

Williams added that the risk of contracting COVID-19, which was named by the World Health Organization on Tuesday, still remains low in the province.

Besides Ontario, there are four confirmed coronavirus cases in BC.

Its officials are asking anyone returning from Hubei province to report to the health unit and self-isolate for 14 days once they return as a precaution. "We also arranged for necessary tests to be done, to make sure we ruled the disease out moving forward".
