A woman in Chicago in her sixties was Friday confirmed as the second patient on US soil infected with a deadly new virus that has sickened hundreds in China, health officials said, with 50 other suspected cases under investigation.

"I'm pleased to report she is clinically doing well and is in stable condition," said Allison Arwady, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health.
