The virus that's been stealing the headlines the last few days has officially made its way to Illinois. Coronavirus, first identified in China, officially made it to the United States with the first reported case in Washington earlier this week. Now, a 60-year-old woman from Chicago, who traveled through O'Hare International on January 13, has been diagnosed with it, according to Fox 32.

The Coronavirus symptoms are much like the common cold. They include mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illness, runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever and a general feeling of being unwell, according to the CDC. Unfortunately, there are no vaccines to protect humans at this point.

O'Hare International began screening for the disease on Wednesday. If you have done any traveling over the last week or so and are starting to feel ill, you may want to get in and see a doctor.
