The newly confirmed patient was one of 65 people aboard a State Department-chartered flight from China that arrived at Miramar on Friday, according to the CDC. All 7 were travelers of the very first discharge trip from China to land in San Diego. The only confirmed evacuee cases were at Miramar, where about 200 people are being held under quarantine until all are cleared. "They have been watched more closely than anyone else in the United States".

Added together, it was a long enough chain of misses to make the CDC comfortable sending the hospitalized patients back to Miramar to complete their quarantines.

Separately, it was reported that United Airlines will extend cancellations of all USA flights to China through late April due to the coronavirus epidemic. The CDC lab did not realize the specimens were from the Miramar patients.

A health ministry statement said: "As of February 13, 2020, we will urgently implement the task of isolation and quarantine of the epidemic area in Son Loi commune".

But further testing by the Centers for Disease Control found that the patient did have coronavirus, and they had to be sent back to the hospital for treatment.

The patient, a female, spent the night in her room on the base, before being returned to the hospital for isolation. "A negative test most likely means a person is not infected".

A difference in labeling by the medical center and the CDC was also involved.

All four of the returned evacuees, Skinner said, were wearing masks during their trips back to the base Sunday.

"With other cases around the country that we're evaluating, we have been doing serial tests to understand whether they're still infectious", she said.

To date, a total of eight coronavirus cases have been documented in California, accounting for more than half of the infections confirmed across the United States, none of them fatal. Many are government employees and their families who are under 14-day quarantine at USA military bases. They're under two-week quarantines in army bases in California, Texas and Nebraska. This is the second person at this base who has tested positive for COVID-19. Individuals on the two flights were divided in two classes - one living in quarters utilized for army employees on short term missions and yet another at a resort for service members in their households.

All will remain on base for 14 days since leaving China.

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