Iowa Health Officials Continue Monitoring Coronavirus Cases

The Iowa Department of Public Health continues to monitor seven people who recently returned from China for coronavirus.

The department says the individuals haven't shown any symptoms of the virus and the two people tested were both negative.

Another 30 have finished a quarantine without showing any symptoms. State Epidemiologist Dr. Caitlin Pedati says there's still a lot that is unknown about this virus.

She reminds anyone who might think they have been exposed to coronavirus to contact their doctor's office.

Pedati says all of Iowa's health care facilities should consider how patients should be managed and what their individual clinical needs are if an outbreak happened in the state.
