Potential NYC coronavirus case tests negative for illness

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City has its first confirmed case of the new coronavirus that has sickened people around the globe, state officials announced Sunday. The sick person was a woman in her late 30s who contracted the virus while traveling in Iran, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office said. She is currently self-quarantined in her Manhattan home.

More than 80,000 cases of COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, have...
