California couple makes 11 confirmed coronavirus cases in US”

A man in the San Francisco Bay Area has tested positive for the new coronavirus, according to news reports.

The group of 195 passengers, who arrived on a U.S. State Department- chartered airplane on Wednesday, had been staying at the military base under a three-day voluntary isolation while they were evaluated to ensure none developed any symptoms. The husband traveled to Wuhan, China, where the virus is believed to have originated, but the wife contracted the disease in the second person-to-person transmission in the USA, according to a statement from health officials. She is in the hospital and doing "quite well", her doctors said. So far, six other cases of the virus have been reported in the us, including two cases in Southern California, two in IL, one in Arizona and one in Washington state.

A second case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Santa Clara County, said Santa Clara County Public Health Department (SCCPHD) Director Sara Cody at a Sunday press conference.

The San Benito couple's diagnosis is the second person-to-person transmission of the virus.

However, a few weeks after he returned from China, the husband and wife started feeling symptoms of the virus and called health officials, according to KSBW. Two others have been identified in nearby Santa Clara County.

Stanford Environmental Health and Safety has asked members of the Stanford community who have recently travelled to or from China to self-isolate for 14 days.

"We're working closely and hand-in-hand with the Chinese government to try and resolve what is now this global epidemiological challenge", Pompeo told the news outlet. Public health officials are now trying to reach anyone he may have come into contact with during those times to assess whether they were exposed to the virus. SBCPHD is communicating with local health care providers on how to safely and effectively evaluate ill people who have been to China.

The outbreak of this respiratory illness started in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

The World Health Organization declared the outbreak an worldwide public health emergency. There is still not a definitive time for the plane's arrival in Wuhan.

The State Department has already evacuated hundreds of Americans from Wuhan, placing them in a quarantine area at a military base in Southern California.
