It is unclear in the statement if there will be questions or not.
Meanwhile, the most recent from the CDC:
An outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the 2019 unique coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) began in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019, and has spread throughout China and to 31 other nations and territories, consisting of the United States (1 ). As of February 23, 2020, there were 76,936 reported cases in mainland China and 1,875 cases in areas outside mainland China (1 ). There have actually been 2,462 associated deaths worldwide; no deaths have been reported in the United States. Fourteen cases have been diagnosed in the United States, and an additional 39 cases have actually taken place amongst repatriated individuals from high-risk settings, for a current overall of 53 cases within the United States. This report sums up the aggressive measures (2,3) that CDC, state and regional health departments, multiple other federal firms, and other partners are carrying out to slow and try to include transmission of COVID-19 in the United States. These steps need the recognition of cases and contacts of persons with COVID-19 in the United States and the advised assessment, monitoring, and care of travelers arriving from areas with significant COVID-19 transmission. These measures may not avoid prevalent transmission of the virus in the United States, they are being implemented to 1) slow the spread of illness; 2) provide time to better prepare state and regional health departments, health care systems, companies, academic organizations, and the basic public in the occasion that widespread transmission happens; and 3) better identify COVID-19 to guide public health recommendations and the development and release of medical countermeasures, including diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines. U.S. public health authorities are monitoring the situation closely, and CDC is collaborating efforts with the World Health Company (WHO) and other worldwide partners. Interim guidance is available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/index.html. As more is learnt more about this novel virus and this outbreak, CDC will quickly incorporate new understanding into assistance for action by CDC, state and local health departments, healthcare companies, and communities.
Person-to-person spread of COVID-19 appears to occur primarily by breathing transmission. Based on the incubation period of disease for Middle East breathing syndrome (MERS) and extreme intense respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronaviruses, as well as observational data from reports of travel-related COVID-19, CDC estimates that symptoms of COVID-19 take place within 2–14 days after exposure.
That was from Tuesday.
