CLEVELAND — The second patient diagnosed with coronavirus in Chicago traveled to Cleveland, according to Melanie Amato from the Ohio Department of Health.

Amato said the 60-year-old man was in Cleveland on Jan. 14 for less than a day and showed no symptoms.

The Ohio Department of Health tweeted he was not infectious while he was in Cleveland.

The CDC announced Thursday a woman, who was confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus in Chicago, Illinois, transmitted it to her husband.

Last week, health officials said the woman, who is in her 60s, reported feeling sick when she arrived home to Chicago from Wuhan on Jan. 13.

CDC officials say the woman's husband immediately started experiencing symptoms of the virus and that the wife is doing OK.

It is unknown how he traveled to Cleveland.
