34 people in United States with coronavirus

US confirms 34 coronavirus case as global toll climbs CDC Reports New Travel-Linked COVID-19 Case, Travel Advisories

As an alternative, the State Department thought it was best to isolate the infected people in one part of the plane, the part that could be wrapped in plastic so the covering could be disposed upon alighting the plane.

Meanwhile, the embassy found out the exact number of tourists from Hubei province stranded in Japan in a short period of time, and coordinated three chartered flights to bring the 541 Hubei tourists back to China safely.

More than 100 American passengers remain in Japan, and US health officials announced Tuesday that they will not be allowed to return home for at least two more weeks.

The other 13 patients weren't among the groups that were repatriated.

This is a picture of CDC's laboratory test kit for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). "We still don't have a vaccine for this new virus, nor do we have a medication to treat it specifically", Nancy Messonnier, MD, director, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, CDC, said during a press conference today.

Buses carrying American evacuees from the Diamond Princess cruise ship leave the runway at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas, on February 17, 2020. This marks the seventh case in California.

Earlier this month, the United States began to bar entry to any foreigners who have recently traveled to China.

USA health officials are taking and will continue to take unprecedented actions to reduce the impact the virus will have on Americans, including coordinating with state and local health departments "to ready our public health workforce to respond to local cases" and prepare for a pandemic, or a rapid increase in the number of cases, Messonnier told reporters.

There are 13 US and 21 repatriated cases, including 18 former passengers of the Diamond Princess cruise ship which docked in Japan, and three others who had been previously evacuated from China. Others are being treated in special isolation units in hospitals.

That response, she said, involves not just looking for new cases of coronavirus, but preparing for what happens if the virus spreads in the United States. Community spread is taking place in some countries outside China, including South Korea, Malaysia, and Japan. They added that they eventually expect to include Diamond Princess passengers who tested positive in Japan and have remained there for observation and treatment.

Samples from the passengers were obtained 48 to 72 hours before the passengers boarded the State Department-charted plane, Ian Brownlee, an acting assistant secretary for the department, told reporters. William Walters, director of operational medication for the State Department, mentioned the 14 individuals had been already within the evacuation pipeline and protocol dictated they need to be introduced home, in keeping with the report. Then the lab results showing positive results among people not showing symptoms came in.

"That both protects the rest of the passengers and the rest of the crew from any spread".

Ultimately, the 14 infected patients were allowed to board.

"These are hard decisions that we're faced with everyday and we're making those decisions in real time", Messonnier added.

This includes 21 cases among repatriated individuals, as well as 13 United States cases.
