At least five people in the United States are confirmed to have contracted the coronavirus, which has spread from China’s Wuhan Province infecting more than 8,000 people and killing more than 170.

Delaware health officials say one individual in Kent County is currently being tested for the virus, but add there is no immediate threat of coronavirus becoming widespread in the First State.

Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino recently spoke with Jennifer Horney, a Professor in the University of Delaware’s Department of Health Sciences Epidemiology program about the coronavirus and how state agencies in Delaware are monitoring the evolving situation.
