As of noon Wednesday, 13 states across the U.S. have reported over 80 confirmed nonrepatriated cases of the novel coronavirus, according to the CDC. Of those cases, 24 were travel-related, 16 were person-to-person spread and 40 are still under investigation. Here are the infected patient populations by state:
Arizona has to date only reported one coronavirus case. A state laboratory is now using in-house testing for the virus to speed potential diagnoses and avoid relying on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
California has reported a total of 29 cases. California was the first state to see a case arise of “unknown origin.” Earlier Wednesday the state confirmed its first coronavirus-related death, the first victim to succumb to the virus outside of Washington State.
Florida has confirmed three cases of coronavirus. As a result, the famed Ultra Music Festival in Miami has been canceled, the first time in the festival's 21-year history it will not go on as planned.
Georgia has reported two coronavirus cases, both in people who live in the same household. One of the two had recently returned from Italy, which has experienced a surge of cases in recent weeks.
Illinois health officials have announced four confirmed coronavirus cases. The fourth case, a woman in her 70s, was the wife of the man who contracted the third case. The first two cases made a full recovery.
