Even before the first possible case of community-spread coronavirus in the nation was reported this week, Arizona already had a response plan in place.
“We want to be prepared; we are prepared,” Gov. Doug Ducey told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News on Thursday.
Ducey said he receives daily briefs on the infection that originated in Wuhan, China, and has sickened people in dozens of countries.
Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that someone who lives in Northern California has contracted the disease and they don’t know how. The patient is said to have not been anywhere he or she could have been exposed, or knowingly come into contact with anyone who has been infected.
