HHS Secretary Azar Says New Coronavirus Case Appears in Chicago

The case was announced before the latest in Rhode Island

Sunday morning, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said that a new case of the coronavirus appeared in Chicago overnight, marking the latest spread of the outbreak in the United States.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Azar confirmed the latest infection as fears mount that the virus will continue to spread across the country.

"We've had 23 cases here in the United States that are not a result of us repatriating individuals from Japan or China," Azar said. "Of those individuals, we've got cases in Chicago as well as Washington and Oregon where we do -- and two in California where we do not yet know why they contracted the novel coronavirus."
