"What we don't know though is how much of the asymptomatic cases are driving transmission", he told CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta in an interview on Thursday.

The latest patient is among the evacuees from Wuhan being held in quarantine at JBSA-Lackland and is the first confirmed case in Texas.

The new numbers will likely change health officials' approaches.

"The mishap was unfortunate but we have corrected this from happening again in the future by adding additional quality control", Messonnier added. But CDC mentioned Thursday it anticipated further showed instances in the approaching days and weeks, together with a few of the greater than 600 individuals who stay on more than a few USA bases after coming back from Wuhan.

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

Officials say she was isolated at the base for testing and sent back to a hospital after results came back.

As a result, the CDC is re-manufacturing the component they believe to be at fault for the imperfect testing and will redistribute the test component.

Texas had previously no reported cases of the coronavirus and other evacuees on the San Antonio base are being monitored for symptoms.

The test will then be employed on people who develop symptoms as well as anyone returning from China's Hubei province and anyone who develop the primary symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath.

The details about the mix-up happened the same day 195 evacuees were cleared to leave March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, California, after clearing their final screening.

Dr. Randy Taplitz, the hospital's clinical director of infection prevention, said the labels on the samples were performed according to hospital protocol, but a miscommunication must have caused some issue between UCSD Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, leading to the patient's inadvertent release back to the base.

More than 800 Americans and family members evacuated from China aboard State Department-chartered flights since late last month have been placed under quarantine - the first imposed by the CDC in 50 years - at one of five U.S. military bases in California, Texas and Nebraska, according to the CDC.

Then, Wednesday night, a fourteenth patient was confirmed.

Both patients became ill after landing last week at the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station on an evacuation flight outside of China and are being treated in isolation at a local hospital. She was the first United States evacuee from China to be known to be infected with the novel coronavirus.

So far, airport screening has processed more than 30,000 travelers from China who have passed through 11 airports. Of the total confirmed cases, mainland China accounts for 59,539, while 1,361 of deaths are also on mainland China.
