11 cases of coronavirus confirmed in the US

Three more cases of the Wuhan coronavirus have been reported in California, bringing the state's total to six and the country's total to 11 cases.

Late Sunday, officials confirmed a San Benito County man who had recently traveled back from Wuhan, China, and his wife have the virus. Both were isolating themselves in their home.

The man arrived at San Francisco International Airport on January 24 and was screened and found to be healthy and asymptomatic, said Dr. Martin Fenstersheib, the county's interim health officer.

The next day, the man developed symptoms including a cough and low-grade fever, Fenstersheib said. A few days later, his wife began showing symptoms as well.

The couple has stayed at home since the man's arrival, Fenstersheib said.

Also Sunday, officials confirmed a woman who recently traveled from Wuhan to Santa Clara County also was found to have the virus. She's the second case in the county -- though officials said the cases are unrelated.

Elsewhere in California, Orange and Los Angeles counties each have had one confirmed case.
