The virus is spreading fast in medical offices and facilities, with many employees in some departments reporting painful symptoms such as fever, headache and body aches.
In one recent case, a patient at a hospital in the U.S. state of New Jersey was admitted for testing positive for COVID-19.
“The virus has spread to all of the state’s hospitals,” said Tom Loughlin, a spokesman for the New Jersey Department of Health and Human Services.
“In addition to the general population, some hospitals have a high percentage of patients who tested positive for the virus.
That includes the University of New Brunswick Hospital, which has had a large number of patients come in who were initially discharged, but now are experiencing additional symptoms.”
In addition, hospitals are reporting more than 100 cases of COVID and several deaths.
The state also reported another 442 infections in December.
A spokesperson for the U-M School of Nursing told CNNMoney that the school was testing and monitoring nearly 400 students for COBD-19, the virus that causes COVID.
In February, U-S researchers found that the COVID virus is capable of being transmitted through the air.
“We are not just testing for COBV, we are testing for C. difficile and other types of infections,” Dr. John Eichner, the chief medical officer of the university, told CNN in February.
“We are doing that through the use of airborne instruments that can be used to diagnose, treat and possibly quarantine patients in the event of an infection.”
