Long Island Monitoring Dozens, Possible Coronavirus Exposure

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Dozens of people were being checked for the coronavirus in the New York City area on Wednesday, officials said, but Governor Andrew Cuomo said the state has had no confirmed cases so far.

Most of the people being checked for the virus were in Nassau County, east of New York city on Long Island, where officials at a separate news conference said 83 people who visited China and may have come in contact with the virus were under observation.

“I’m happy to say right now, we don’t have a case,” county health commissioner Lawrence Eisenstein said.
