Health authorities in California have declared a state of sanitary emergency in Los Angeles County after confirming six new cases of coronavirus in that region in the last 48 hours.

This statement was issued after the government agreed that more people who could be infected had access to tests that detect the virus in order to identify and treat those who have been infected.

"I want to reiterate that this is not a response to existing panic," said County Supervisor Kathryn Barger during a press conference. "We need every tool at our disposal."

Authorities have asked the community to follow preventive rules such as avoiding handshakes and hugs, and staying at least six feet away from any stranger to protect themselves.

"We need to be prepared. We have to protect the well-being of our loved ones and our neighbors,”said City Mayor Eric Garcetti.

These initiatives underway in Los Angeles follow the death of an older person who tested positive for the virus Tuesday night and died after being isolated at Placer County Kaiser Permamente Hospital.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the patient had traveled on the Princess cruise ship on February 10 that sailed for Mexico. On his return on February 21, the patient presented various symptoms that led him to the hospital, where he tested positive for the virus.

At the moment, the people closest to this patient are being monitored, while the hospital staff who treated him are in quarantine. According to reports published in the press, none of the 15 health workers have symptoms for now.

“This case demonstrates the need for an ongoing partnership [at the] local, state and federal levels to identify and reduce the spread of this virus. California is working to keep our communities safe, healthy and informed, "said State Governor Gavin Newsom in a statement.
