Canadian public health officials said Thursday that there are no confirmed cases in Canada of infection with the new coronavirus, which has killed more than a dozen people in China, but many patients are tested as a precaution, and all Canadians who are under surveillance have recently traveled to China where the virus has started to circulate in Wuhan.

“Our health care systems have been alerted to identifying and managing potential cases in Canada”, the Canadian Public Health Agency said in a statement, and so far there have been a few potential cases in the provinces (British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario).
