MINOT, N.D. – In this week’s Medical Minute, a new deadly virus that originated in China has made its way to the United States.

A U.S. citizen was hospitalized near Seattle after contracting the disease in central China.

Vendsel also suggests avoiding aisle seats while taking public transportation and to wipe hotel remote controls, public handrails, and doorknobs when you can.

The CDC says it is closely monitoring the virus.
