They were flown by government-chartered cargo jet on January 29 to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County about 60 miles (97 km) east of Los Angeles where they were in quarantine for 14-days - the outer limit of the virus' possible incubation period.

Dr. Schuchat also addressed issues related to the laboratory test, since initially the patient in California was thought to be negative for the coronavirus.

In the meantime, Messonnier said that infection control precautions were taken.

"Because these individuals were in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak where there is intense and escalating community-wide spread of this novel coronavirus, we consider them at high risk of exposure", stated Dr. Christopher Braden, Centers for Disease Control (CDC). "They will take time to develop - but in the meantime, we are not defenseless", World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a Tuesday press conference.

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.

Schuchat said to date, the USA has 13 confirmed cases of coronavirus occurring in six different states.

News of the United States' 14th confirmed COVID-19 infection follows CDC officials saying they expect the outbreak to "take a foothold" in the United States before it is contained. Not one of these evacuees tested positive.

But additional tests by the CDC revealed one of the four had the virus after all, officials said.

The person is the 14th confirmed coronavirus case in the nation, and the eighth in California.

The agency is now re-evaluating the test kits and working with state labs to correct problems, Messonnier said.

The CDC and County Health and Human Services Agency held a joint press conference Tuesday to upgrade the general public about the situation and the quarantine process at MCAS Miramar.

A third person whose test results are pending also is hospitalized in isolation.

The initial group of almost 200 evacuees were released earlier this week from March Air Reserve Base near Los Angeles after the 14-day presumed incubation period of the virus had lapsed without anyone falling ill, the CDC said. State Department flight, CNN reported.

A previous case of coronavirus was documented on Monday among the same group of evacuees, the CDC said. He added that there were only two deaths outside mainland China attributed to the coronavirus.
