The woman went to North York General Hospital in Toronto with an intermittent cough on Friday
Ontario health officials say there’s a new presumptive case of the novel coronavirus in Toronto.
They said a woman arrived in Canada from China on Friday and went to North York General Hospital in Toronto with an intermittent cough.
The province said the woman was tested for the new virus, known as COVID-19, and was sent home for self-isolation because her illness was mild.
Officials said the woman’s local tests came back positive for the virus on Sunday and the sample has been sent to the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg for confirmation.
The province said it’s unlikely that the woman was infectious.
It said she “followed all protocols and wore a mask throughout her travels back to Toronto.”
