Maine Resident Being Tested for Coronavirus

Some states notified the CDC that they were unable to validate the test, and the agency is remanufacturing a reagent used in the test that's not performing consistently. The virus, COVID-19, has infected over 60,000 and murdered at 1,369.

'Since airport screening began in mid-January we have screened more than 30,000 passengers. The flight arrived at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar on February 7.

"At the time, they were relying on phone conversations to relay test results and the CDC in Atlanta told officials in San Diego that all tests were negative", a CDC representative said on Tuesday.

Other states, such as IL, said kits had produced accurate results and they were now doing their own testing. On the other hand, the Chinese government on Wednesday claims an initial victory in controlling the outbreak, saying the number of newly reported cases has fallen for the eighth straight day.

There will likely be additional cases in the coming days and weeks, including among other people recently returned from Wuhan.

Speeding up the tests - which can be delayed by days if sent to Atlanta - is important given the CDC's expectation the virus will likely start spreading within U.S. communities at some point.

More than 600 people who returned to the United States from Wuhan on chartered flights remain under federal quarantine at three USA military bases - JSBA-Lackland, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, and Camp Ashland, an Army National Guard facility in Nebraska.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the woman and three others were discharged and on the way back to the base when it was discovered that three of four tests had not been processed yet.

At today's media briefing, Messonnier said a few people with symptoms on the flight were immediately transported to the hospital and that a system for matching individuals to lab specimens didn't work correctly.

"Things may not always go as smoothly as we may like", noted Dr Messonnier.

Janssen and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of ASPR, will share research and development costs and expertise to help speed Janssen's candidate COVID-19 vaccine into clinical trials.

Covid-19 continues its relentless spread throughout China.

A fifteenth American has coronavirus, U.S. officials announced Thursday.
