The first cases of coronaviruses have been reported in Texas, where an outbreak of the coronaspora virus has spread across the country.
The outbreak began when a resident in an area where coronaviral cases have been documented in the past was infected.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday that more than 8,000 people had been tested for coronavillosis and more than 13,000 had tested positive.
The number of confirmed cases is expected to increase further.
On Friday, the Texas Department of State Health Services said a woman had tested negative for coronovirus in the first confirmed case of coronivirus-related illness in Texas.
Officials are also testing more than 200 other people who may have had contact with the patient and are awaiting results.
State health officials said Thursday that two more people who tested positive for the virus had been admitted to hospitals in Texas for testing.
On Thursday, the first patient who tested negative in Texas was identified, officials said.
The patient had been hospitalized in Houston for more than three weeks.
She tested positive Friday.
Officials said that there is no indication of the virus being passed from person to person in the Texas outbreak.
On Saturday, the Centers for Diseases Control and Diseases Prevention issued a statement saying that more testing was needed to determine whether the person who tested in Texas tested positive and that further testing was being conducted in California.
