Coronavirus: How Many Have It, Where and Who Has Recovered from COVID-19

Location

Alhambra , CA

If you’ve seen a jump in the number of  COVID-19 cases, diagnosed in the U.S. by the CDC, be aware that the numbers can be misleading. Many of the new cases are on military bases where the State Department has quarantined evacuees from Wuhan City, China and the Diamond Princess Cruise ship was was docked off the coast of Japan.

The cases that have been confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through public health systems – meaning testing those who present themselves, have a history of travel or show symptoms at points of entry or hospitals – is still a low number and not spreading throughout the States, including the San Gabriel Valley.

The CDC considers the public health cases separate from the military base quarantine cases, and the risk from the public health cases is still extremely low. You’re more likely to get the flu.

The Alhambra Source previously reported there were 15 cases; three were in federal quarantine from Wuhan, 12 by the CDC in public health systems. Of those 12 CDC-diagnosed cases, two were transmitted from their spouse, the others had a history of travel through China where they were exposed to the virus.

In the last 24 hours, two more non-quarantine cases were confirmed – one in Sacramento County and one in Humboldt County. These bring California’s CDC-diagnosed count to eight. The counties with confirmed cases are Los Angeles, Orange, San Benito, Santa Clara, Sacramento and Humboldt.

The confirmed cases in federal quarantine are 21 – the three from Wuhan and 18 from the Diamond Princess Cruise.

Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 on federal bases are at Travis Air Force Base, Calif.; Marine  Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif.; Lackland Air Force Base, Texas; and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Neb., which is equipped by the CDC for biomedical emergencies from when U.S. citizens had the Ebola virus.

Even though it seems the numbers are climbing, many of the patients who were diagnosed earlier are now recovering. The man in Snohomish County, Wash. – the first U.S. case – is now “fully recovered and free to go about his regular activities,” according to the county health department. He presented himself for medical evaluation on Jan. 19, and released Feb. 20.

The patients in Chicago, Ill. – the husband and wife – have “recovered from their illnesses and there has been no further spread of the virus from these two cases,” as reported in a joint press release by the City of Chicago, Cook County and Illinois departments of public health.

A fourth case, one of the two in Santa Clara, Calif. has “fully recovered and has been released from isolation,” according to the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health.  stated by the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health.

The accompanying Alhambra Source infographic shows where each CDC case was diagnosed and whether they are recovered/released from isolation, and the locations of federal quarantine-related cases.

  1. To state that you are more likely to get the flu is downplaying the seriousness of covid 19 and is irresponsible. Does an entire country go on lock down for the flu?

    1. Hi Tom, The fact is, according to the CDC, you are more likely to get the flu. We understand the seriousness of the coronavirus and that’s why we are constantly reporting on the rapidly changing situation. The CDC says there have been anywhere from 16,000-41,000 flu deaths in the U.S. since Oct. 1, 2019 – and none from the coronavirus in the States. The coronavirus is not spreading in the community, but the flu does spread, and there have been 29-41 million flu illnesses, again according to the CDC. Like the article says, there are 35 COVID-19 illnesses and it is not currently spreading. We appreciate your feedback, however, our reporting is based on factual reporting from the CDC.

Stay Informed.
