UCSF Health Response on Novel Coronavirus Outbreak

UCSF Health has received two patients with confirmed novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), who were transferred to the hospital from another county in California today, Monday, Feb. 3. The patients are being cared for in isolation at UCSF Health.

UCSF, which specializes in the care of patients with complex illnesses, including infectious diseases like the novel coronavirus, also treated patients during past epidemics, such as SARS in 2003.

In addition to our standard infectious disease protocols, we have instituted a number of measures to screen patients with potential 2019-nCoV, as well as prevent the coronavirus’ spread. UCSF Health is screening patients to ensure that we are taking all precautions for any individuals that have traveled from China.
