COVID-19 is a member of the coronavirus family, which included common colds, but this strain has proven much more deadly. One person had died in the U.S. thus far. The number of confirmed cases in the U.S. is “15,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, that number has more to do with a failure in the testing rather than actual cases.

‘Coronavirus: In addition to screening travelers ‘prior to boarding’ from certain designated high risk countries, or areas within those countries, they will also be screened when they arrive in America. Thank you!’

At a press conference in the White House on Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence said the president has directed the State Department to work with Italy and South Korea to coordinate efforts to screen travelers heading to the US.
A spokesperson for Vice President Mike Pence, Katie Miller told CNN:
