A woman from Manhattan who recently traveled to Iran is New York State’s first confirmed coronavirus patient, Your Content has learned.

“This evening we learned of the first positive case of novel coronavirus in New York State,” Gov. Cuomo revealed in a press release Sunday night. “The patient, a woman in her late thirties, contracted the virus while traveling abroad in Iran, and is currently isolated in her home.”

The woman remains isolated in her home. She is showing signs of respiratory symptoms, but is not in serious condition.

“The patient has respiratory symptoms, but is not in serious condition and has been in a controlled situation since arriving to New York.”

“The positive test was confirmed by New York’s Wadsworth Lab in Albany, underscoring the importance of the ability for our state to ensure efficient and rapid turnaround, and is exactly why I advocated for the approval from Vice President Pence that New York was granted just yesterday,” the governor continues.

“There is no cause for surprise — this was expected. As I said from the beginning, it was a matter of when, not if there would be a positive case of novel coronavirus in New York.”

This is a developing breaking news story.
