"Janssen is a proven partner with a flexible, rapid, vaccine platform which gives us an edge in the race to protect people in the USA and worldwide from the health security threat posed by this novel coronavirus".

To date, a total of eight coronavirus cases have been documented in California, accounting for more than half of the 14 infections confirmed across the United States, none of them fatal.

CDC's director of the Center for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Dr Nancy Messonnier issued a calm but stark warning.

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. Currently, a three-member advance team from the WHO is in Beijing to meet with Chinese health officials and flesh out details of the joint mission.

This is the first person under quarantine at JBSA-Lackland who had symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19, according to the CDC.

On the heels of the test release, officials predicted an uptick in the number of diagnoses in the US.

She added that the CDC, in its outbreak planning, isn't counting on a drop in virus activity as the weather warms. Those that haven't been successful have to wait for the CDC to ship out the replacement components.

The virus can cause fever, coughing, wheezing and pneumonia.

The 195 people who were on the first flight out of Wuhan were released from March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County, California, where they were quarantined, on Tuesday, but more than 600 people remain isolated at military bases.

The person was aboard a flight from the city of Wuhan that arrived at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in Southern California last week, the CDC said.

She'd originally been dismissed as negative for the disease, but when her sample was actually run and came up positive, the woman was transported back to the hospital.

Then, Wednesday night, a fourteenth patient was confirmed. It also said its first patient to recover from Covid-19 was discharged from hospital.

'Since airport screening began in mid-January we have screened more than 30,000 passengers.
