The Chinese government is scrambling to contain the coronavirus outbreak, with disturbing videos on social media showing its extreme measures to quarantine the sick. More Americans arrived overnight in the U.S. from Wuhan with no more evacuation flights planned.

The New York Times reports the deceased was a 60 year old woman with "underlying health conditions."
The CDC says the man was likely infected from community spread. Two other new cases were identified at a nursing facility in the state, also from suspected community spread, where officials now believe there could be an outbreak.
