Emergency has been placed in schools, medical centers and workplaces to deal with the risk of the virus spreading immediately. The cure for the epidemic is yet to be discovered, and therefore, the panic of the cities is quite justified.

Other states have also reported individual cases, and the total number in the United States has increased to 87, according to the reports from New York, Florida and Rhode Island.
