    far mostly been travel-related and connected to those who were on board the
    Diamond Princess cruise ship. There are also cases from those repatriated from
    Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak, as well as those who contracted the
    deadly virus by person-to-person contact.

    Situation Update No. 9 on February 27 2020 01:10 PM (UTC)    Massachusetts Department of Public Health
    announced Wednesday2/26  that 231 people
    in the state are being monitored for coronavirus-like symptoms.The risk of
    coronavirus in the state remains low and there has been only one confirmed
    case, officials said. The infected patient is said to be improving and doing
    well. Officials also said that 377 other people in the state have been
    evaluated for the virus and cleared.Area hospitals have plans in place to
    combat the virus in the event an emergency situation arises, officials added.
    There is no shortage of supplies, including masks, and additional manpower is
    standing by if needed.Dr. Monica Bharel, commissioner of the Mass. DPH,
    stressed that, "Here in Massachusetts, we have the resources, the staff,
    the connections with our partners in healthcare and public health that we need
    in order to prepare for this."Extra precautions are also being taken by
    organizers of the PAX East convention that is taking place in Boston from
    Thursday to Sunday.

    Most of the Americans who were being monitored at the University of Nebraska
    Medical Center for coronavirus after evacuating a cruise ship in Japan tested
    positive for the virus, the hospital says.

    UMNC said in
    a statement 2/27/20 that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
    verified the Nebraska Public Health Lab results showing that 11 of the 13
    patients have the novel coronavirus. The other two evacuees who were taken to
    the Omaha hospital tested negative, the statement said.The hospital had said
    some of the patients had tested positive in Japan but some "came with a
    lack of clarity what their test results were," Shelly Schwedhelm told CNN.
    Schwedhelm is the UNMC/Nebraska Medical Executive Director of Emergency
    Management and Biopreparedness who has clinical oversight of the quarantine and
    biocontainment units.Several people are exhibiting minor symptoms but others
    are not showing any symptoms, the release said.Bert Kelly, a CDC spokesman,
    told CNN that the agency has verified the results, bringing the total of
    confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United States to 26.The US Office of the
    Assistant Secretary for Preparedness Response asked UNMC early Monday to take
    in 13 patients who had either tested positive, or had a high likelihood of
    testing positive, for the novel coronavirus.The patients had been on a cruise ship
    docked off the cost of Japan for two weeks.UNMC was commissioned by the CDC in
    2005 to create the biocontainment unit where three patients currently are. The
    rest of the patients are in a separate federal quarantine center on the campus
    that UNMC built through a private-public partnership.

    coronavirus in the United States is one of the evacuees at Lackland Air Force
    Base in Texas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The patient has
    been under the 14-day federal quarantine since arriving in the US from China on
    a chartered flight on February 7, the CDC said. The person, described by a CDC
    official as a "solo traveler," has been isolated and is receiving
    medical care at a hospital.

    Wuhan, China, to a U.S. Marine base near San Diego has been diagnosed with the
    new coronavirus, raising the tally of confirmed cases in the United States to
    14, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on
    Wednesday.The patient was among 232 individuals who had been placed under
    quarantine at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar after being airlifted from
    the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan earlier this month, CDC
    spokeswoman Ana Toro said.A previous case of coronavirus was documented a few
    days earlier among the same group of evacuees, the CDC said.CDC officials said
    it appeared that the two San Diego patients were separately exposed to the virus
    in China before arriving in the United States. The two arrived on different
    planes and were housed in separate facilities.

    Situation Update No. 3 on February 05 2020.Two jets carrying about 350
    Americans fleeing the virus zone in China landed Wednesday morning at an Air
    Force base in Northern California. Some will be quarantined at a hotel on the
    base for 14 days while others will go under quarantine at a Southern California
    military base, officials said.Guests and staff at the hotel on Travis Air Force
    Base near the city of Fairfield, about 50 miles from San Francisco, were moved
    out ahead of the planes' arrival, said Technical Sgt. Traci Keller. The
    Americans were evacuated from the Chinese city of Wuhan, which is at the center
    of the new virus outbreak.Other planes carrying Americans home from Wuhan will
    arrive this week at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas and Eppley
    Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska, where they will be quarantined, the U.S. Centers
    for Disease Control said in a statement.The U.S. Northern Command tweeted that

    number of U.S. cases to 11.The couple, both 57 years old, have not left their
    home since the husband returned from China, according to a Sunday announcement

    Area who became ill after returning from a trip to China was the ninth person
    in the U.S. to test positive for a new virus, health authorities said Sunday.
    It was the second novel coronavirus case announced in Santa Clara County in the
    past three days but the two cases are not related, according to the county
    Public Health Department.The woman, a visitor to the U.S., had recently
    travelled to Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the virus. She arrived Jan. 23 to
    visit family, officials said in a news release.The patient has stayed at home
