FACTS

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to announce this afternoon that a patient in the United States has been diagnosed with the “Novel coronavirus” currently infecting individuals in five countries.  This individual is listed in stable condition in Washington state.

     Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that range from the common cold to more serious diseases like MERS and SARS.  In rare instances, these types of viruses spread from animals to people and then from person to person.  Symptoms can range from respiratory problems, fever and coughing to potentially serious and sometimes fatal conditions like pneumonia and kidney failure.  This latest strain has never before been identified in humans, so officials are referring to it by the generic term “novel coronavirus.”  

    LEFT

    We have yet to see a general Left-wing narrative on this issue, but an unverified Twitter user with close to 150,000 followers seemed to insinuate that the Trump administration was at fault for the spread of the disease to the US. 

    RIGHT

    There does not seem to be a particularly Right-wing perspective on this subject yet.  Most of the accounts we viewed on social media simply linked to the mainstream news articles on the subject or noted that the CDC’s announcement led to a slide in the U.S. stock market
