A possible case of the Coronavirus is under investigation in Kansas.

Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Lee Norman said in a statement a resident of Douglas County, which includes the college town of Lawrence, is the person currently in isolation at a hospital.

The patient recently returned  from Wuhan City, China. That city is the epicenter of the virus outbreak.

The secretary describes the patient as “not severely ill” despite returning.
