ABC News reports it's unclear if the passenger, who arrived on a flight from Mexico City, has coronavirus or what symptoms were exhibited.

A passenger who landed at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) from Mexico City was immediately quarantined Wednesday evening after showing possible symptoms of the deadly coronavirus, US health officials announced Thursday.

Early identification of symptoms, isolation of patients who present with possible coronavirus cases, ensuring that hospitals have the right personal protective gear for nurses and doctors, and clear lines of communication with public health officials will be essential if the outbreak continues to spread and arrives in MA. Public nicely being officers in LA County talked about Wednesday it was "very attainable" the world would see on the very least one affected individual on account of number of people touring between China and the El Lay area.

Officials stress there have been no local case of the China-based coronavirus, but insisted the county is prepared to respond to any cases. But they note that with the Lunar New Year holiday, travel from China may be at increased levels now.

US health officials are reiterating the need to take precautions against the deadly virus, especially due to flu season being underway.

Kuwait's state-run news agency said isolation rooms had also been opened at Kuwait International Airport for passengers suspected to have the virus.

More airports are beginning to screen passengers arriving from China amid growing concerns Friday over the outbreak of a new virus there that has already killed more than two dozen people and sickened hundreds.

According to the CDC, coronavirus can be spread among people through the air by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact such as shaking hands and touching a surface with the virus then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands.

Children, older adults and people with weakened immune systems may be subject to more severe symptoms, including death.
