2nd case of new coronavirus confirmed among China evacuees

Some U.S. states launch coronavirus testing while faulty test kits delay others

The patient, who was aboard a flight from the city of Wuhan that arrived at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in Southern California last week, is now in isolation at a hospital in San Diego. They said the confirmed positive patient was returned to the hospital for observation and isolation, where they will remain until they are cleared by the CDC for release.

At present, eight of the more than 200 evacuees under quarantine at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar have shown symptoms suggesting that they may be infected, but only one has tested positive.

Only two of the 14 cases are believed to have been transmitted person-to-person within the United States - both between married couples after one of the spouses returned home from a recent visit to China.

This was the first passenger from one of the State Department evacuations flights out of Wuhan with a positive test. Passengers are being placed under medical quarantine for 14 days, with extensive monitoring and testing, as detailed by the CDC in recent briefings.

The CDC stated it would certainly be launching even more information concerning the second case Wednesday evening. In the near future, the CDC plans to update its guidance to healthcare workers on proper management of patients with the virus and coordinate with manufacturers of personal protective equipment, or PPE, including face masks and respirators, to address shortages.

Finally, when San Diego CDC personnel called to get the test results, Atlanta lab personnel missed the fact that the samples for those three patients had been set aside due to the labeling incongruity, instead giving San Diego CDC officials negative results for three different patients.

First case of Coronavirus confirmed in London
Most people who test positive for the virus experience mild symptoms, including cough, fever and shortness of breath. Prof Paul Cosford, from Public Health England, told the BBC his teams were doing their best to contain the spread.

Messonnier has said that the mix-up with the first evacuee was unrelated to the test kit issue.

"A great deal of opinion was expressed that we will need to generate a few suggestions and receive some comments", said quarantined patient Jake Wilson.

But until the mistake was detected, she was temporarily return to MCAS Miramar.

'The mishap was unfortunate but it was corrected from happening again in the future by adding additional quality control'.

The CDC has been leading the U.S.'s medical response to the disease as part of a task force Trump established to combat the spread of coronavirus within the country. A second person was also transported to the hospital for testing.

The only death from the outbreak outside of China was in the Philippines, bringing the global death toll to 1,114. "They have been watched more closely than anyone else in the United States". But based on what they've learned so far, they say it appears unlikely anyone else is at risk.
