174 people aboard a cruise ship quarantined off Japan’s coast have now tested positive for the novel coronavirus — including a quarantine officer — the country’s health ministry confirmed, as the global death toll continues to rise. COVID-19 has now killed 1,15 people, per the latest official figures. A person in Hong Kong and another in the Philippinesare the only ones to die of the virus outside mainland China, where it’s infected over 45,000 people, a number the CDC believes is underreported. There are nearly 500 cases in 27 other countries and territories.

Last 48 hours:
  • Evacuees released: The first group of U.S. citizens who were evacuated from Wuhan, China, to a military base in California were leaving their 14-day quarantine with a clean bill of health, CDC principal deputy director Anne Schuchat said Tuesday.
  • In China: The WHO sent a team of international scientists to work on-the-ground in China. While CDC “sent names” of U.S. experts to WHO for consideration, a top CDC official would not confirm on Tuesday if any were part of the team.
  • 13th patient: The CDC confirmed there’s a 13th case in the United States, a person evacuated from Wuhan and tested at UC San Diego Public Health, where the person was discharged and returned to federal quarantine. This was due to a “mix-up” on the person’s test results, Schuchat said Tuesday.
