Ontario's third coronavirus case 'resolved,' officials say

"If you are returning from China but not Hubei you need to monitor yourself for symptoms and contact us if you develop any respiratory symptoms like cough, cold or fever".

Despite published reports, the health unit says they are not probing any more possible cases of the virus in London at this time.

The student in her 20s never went to campus after returning to London and sought treatment at University Hospital.

Her symptoms subsided in three days, but she remained in self-isolation until two tests 24 hours apart returned negative for the virus.

Her case is now considered "resolved", he added in a statement.


The Chief Medical Officer of Health says Ontario's third case of the coronavirus has been resolved and the individual is no longer infected.

Across the province, the Ministry of Health's daily tracking data show nine potential coronavirus cases under investigation. The woman was at first asymptomatic when she arrived on January 23, officials said, however she began to exhibit symptoms of the illness the next day and went to the hospital. "Additional testing has been conducted by both the Public Health Ontario Laboratory and the National Microbiology Lab (Winnipeg)", said Dr. Williams.

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

Four people were diagnosed with the virus in British Columbia.

Williams said the risk for Ontarians contracting the coronavirus remains low. "We're trying to make sure people are aware".
