The New York State Department of Health said on Friday that a coronavirus case had been confirmed in a patient at a Manhattan hospital who was infected with the virus after eating a cake decorated as a birthday party spoon.
The patient is in stable condition and in stable quarantine, the state health department said in a statement.
A day earlier, the hospital reported that a patient who had been in the hospital for more than a month had tested positive for coronaviruses.
