Health officials announce London case of coronavirus 'resolved'

Dr. David Williams the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario

On Jan. 31, health officials reported that a woman in her 20s had returned from Wuhan, China, the epicentre of the viral outbreak.

Ontario has now tested 313 people for the coronavirus, for which nine people are awaiting results as of Wednesday morning.

Health unit staff were in daily communication with the Western University student who had visited the affected region of China in late January.

Early Wednesday, the Ontario's Ministry of Health announced the infected London woman is returning to her normal activities almost three weeks after she developed symptoms and was put in self-isolation in her home. Even though she didn't have any symptoms, Middlesex-London's chief medical officer of health, Dr. Chris Mackie, credited her for going "above and beyond to protect the public" by wearing a mask and putting herself in self-isolation.

"If you are returning from Hubei, China in the next 14 days, you need to report to public health", says Summers.

A case of coronavirus in London has been resolved, according to the province's chief medical officer of health, Dr. David Williams.

The illness has killed more than 1,100, mostly in China's heavily stricken Hubei province.

Williams said the risk for Ontarians contracting the coronavirus remains low.

Four people were diagnosed with the virus in British Columbia.

"I'd like to thank our partners across the health-care system for their continued efforts in containing the virus and protecting the health and well-being of individuals and families across the province", he said.
