Two More Cases of Coronavirus Confirmed in the Triangle

Two more Triangle residents have tested positive for the novel coronavirus as of last night (Wednesday).

A Wake County resident tested positive for the virus, bringing the total number of cases in the county to seven and the total number of cases in the state to eight.

According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Serivces, the patient had contact with a man from Indiana who visited the Biogen offices in Research Triangle Park while symptomatic last week.

The patient is isolated at home, health officials said.

"This is not a surprise," said Wake County Medical Director Dr. Kim McDonald in a written statement. "As we track the movements of the people already affected by COVID-19, it's likely that more individuals will test presumptively positive for the virus."

A Durham County resident currently visiting another state tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, Durham County Department of Public Health said in a written statement.

Because the resident was diagnosed in another state, they will stay there in isolation until they are fully recovered.

Durham health officials said the person did not have any contact with Durham residents while symptomatic. The patient flew into Raleigh Durham International Airport from an undisclosed international location on March 2 before becoming symptomatic on March 3. On March 5, the patient drove alone out of state and was diagnosed on March 9.

According to Durham health officials, because the patient was not symptomatic when they flew into RDU, the risk to other passengers is low.
