Americans to be released from quarantine with no reported coronavirus cases

Americans to be released from quarantine with no reported coronavirus cases”

The 195 evacuees were flown out of coronavirus epicenter Wuhan on a State Department-commissioned flight about two weeks ago before they were taken to March Air Reserve Base for medical isolation.

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.

The 195 Americans quarantined at a California military base following their evacuation from China after the coronavirus outbreak are scheduled to be released, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said Tuesday.

"And at this point none of them have come down with the virus and we think that's good news".

Kaiser on Monday said no one from the first group of Americans tested positive for the virus, which is believed to have sickened tens of thousands across China, and that "two individuals with symptoms were retested and also found to be negative and have since recovered". The other two cases were person-to-person transmission. The 195 people arrived in the United States on January 29 and their quarantine expires on Tuesday.

"Today is the 14th day of the quarantine of the individuals who were on the first charter flight returning from Wuhan province and they are now being assessed to make sure they remain symptom-free", Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, said during a press briefing. A lot of them have been quarantined at military bases across the country.

"A few base workers have even been accosted in uniform".

Rear Admiral Nancy Knight, who is running the quarantine operation, said base personnel had been refused housing in the local community due to fears they would spread coronavirus and their children had suffered discrimination at school.

Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said all returning citizens and permanent residents will be screened for the virus in an attempt to prevent it from spreading inside the United States. The authorization was made "out of an abundance of caution related to uncertainties associated" with the disease, according to a department spokesperson.
