CDC Identifies 13th Patient with Coronavirus in US

Federal health officials confirmed another case of the novel coronavirus in the U.S., bringing the total number of confirmed infections to 13.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the individual was an evacuee from Wuhan, China, who was under federal quarantine in San Diego.

But the patient had been allowed to leave UC San Diego hospital and return to the quarantine site after a “mix-up” with the testing results, a CDC official told reporters Tuesday.

“It turns out there was probably a mix-up, and the original test wasn’t negative,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC.

“There has been a new test collected in order to understand whether the person is still symptomatic, so there was just a little bit of a mix-up there.”

Schuchat did not provide any information about how the mix-up happened.AMIBC® - VOTE! BE COUNTED! BE HEARD!
