She had previously met with people from the most afflicted areas. So, we already have evidence of a multiple-step transmission chain.
It was also reported that the woman was from Shanghai, but was visited by her parents from the Wuhan region before she left. In addition, she did not have any symptoms until the return flight. If this is all true then it's unlikely that the spread can be halted unless the virus peters out like influenza in Spring.
