As of Saturday, 22 states across the U.S. have reported 164 confirmed nonrepatriated cases of the novel coronavirus, according to the CDC. Of those cases, 36 were travel-related, 18 were person-to-person spread and 110 are still under investigation. There have been 16 deaths in the U.S. from coronavirus, including 13 in the state of Washington, one in California and two in Florida.

The number of infected cases is likely to be much higher than what the CDC is reported because many of them have yet to be officially confirmed by the agency.


Arizona now has nine reported cases of the coronavirus, according to state health officials. 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 274 cases. California was the first state to see a case arise of “unknown origin.” The state confirmed six coronavirus-related deaths and had the first victim to succumb to the virus outside of Washington state.


Colorado confirmed 77 cases of the coronavirus, according to Gov. Jared Polis. Among those infected, a man in his 30s had traveled to Italy, while an elderly woman is isolated at her home after returning to the state from international travel.

There were 57 cases in Westchester County and two in Rockland County that can be traced to a cluster related to Lawrence Garbuz, 50.
