TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas City-area woman who recently traveled to the Northeast is the first case of coronavirus in Kansas, officials confirmed Saturday. 

Gov. Laura Kelly and health officials said the woman, who’s under 50, is isolating herself at home after seeing her doctor over the common symptoms of the new coronavirus, including a cough, slight fever and shortness of breath. She lives in Johnson County, the state’s most populous county.

“The patient’s doing well, by the way,” said Lee Norman, secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
