CDC confirms 15th case of coronavirus in the United States

Epoch Times

Officials said the quarantine and travel restrictions have "slowed the arrival of the virus" in the United States.

There have been 13 confirmed cases of the infection in patients in the United States so far.

The kits were meant to enable states to conduct their own testing and get results faster than they would by shipping samples to the C.D.C.in Atlanta. The delay in diagnosis might contribute to the disease's spread as patients under investigation (PUI) will remain unconfirmed as having the disease. The CDC lab did not realize the specimens were from the Miramar patients. It hasn't said how numerous kits are flawed, however.

But the flaw was actually discovered, C.D.C. officials said, before the kits had been shipped overseas.

During trial runs in some states, the kits produced results that were "inconclusive", said Dr. Messonnier.

Yesterday, Dr Messonnier said: 'Chinese cases are dropping down, so we're optimistic that their aggressive methods are effective, but it's too soon to say'.

She said CDC is working closely with states, and will deliver new ingredients to laboratories that have encountered the problem.

She added that the CDC, in its outbreak planning, isn't counting on a drop in virus activity as the weather warms.

Though all cases identified in the United States have been linked to Wuhan travelers or their close contacts, preparation continue with the assumption that could gain a foothold in the United States, and changes in community transmission in the United States or other countries could drive changes in recommendations.

BARDA Director Rick Bright, PhD, said, "With emerging infectious diseases such as COVID-19, speed is crucial to saving lives and reducing further spread of the virus".

The CDC is now sending all states a new supply of the ingredient linked to the flawed kits, regardless if they have reported issues with the kits or not.

The only confirmed evacuee cases were at Miramar, where about 200 people are being held under quarantine until all are cleared. Of the total confirmed cases, mainland China accounts for 59,539, while 1,361 of deaths are also on mainland China.
