California declares emergency after state's first coronavirus death

"If you are presenting symptoms of COVID-19 and may have had contact with a person with COVID-19 or had recent worldwide travel, please contact your healthcare provider", the county said.

At least 11 passengers and 10 crew members on board have reportedly developed symptoms of the coronavirus, Newsom said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Placer County Public Health confirmed three additional COVID-19 cases on Thursday evening after receiving presumptively positive test results, bringing the total number of local cases to five including the one death announced previously.

Ten of the 11 USA deaths were in Washington state, but the outbreak has also flared up in Texas and Nebraska.

"Jennifer and I extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones affected by this death in Placer County", Gov. Gavin Newsom said.

The proclamation specifically aims to protect consumers against price gouging and allows health care workers to come from out of state to assist at health care facilities.

The ship had journeyed from San Francisco to Mexico and back.

The market remained under pressure even after a blowout jobs report. Another haven asset gold had its best week since 2016. The Russell 2000 fell 27.21 points, or 1.8%.

Princess Cruises also owns the Diamond Princess, the ship that hosted one of the largest outbreaks of the new coronavirus outside China. Symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or up to 14 days after exposure. Ten other people have died in Washington state, with the majority of those linked to a long-term nursing home near downtown Seattle.

Health officials believed the patient who passed away Wednesday morning in Placer County may have been infected sometime between February 11 to February 21, during global travel on the Grand Princess cruise ship that departed from San Francisco to Mexico. All six have had known contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient, health officials said. The California Department of Public Health informed Ventura County Public Health at 7:40 p.m. March 4 about the six local passengers.

Calaveras County health officials on Friday afternoon announced that they have received negative test results for residents who was believed to have been exposed to the coronavirus while aboard the Grand Princess cruise ship that returned two weeks ago.

The elderly patient had underlying health conditions and died at a hospital in Roseville, near Sacramento, according to Placer County health officials.

The Placer County patient arrived at Kaiser Permanente Roseville by ambulance on February 27 and was kept in isolation, according to the release. Secondary confirmation is pending from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The US has reported more than 130 coronavirus cases, some of which are mild. It means that the test-if a provider deems it medically necessary-will be free for state residents who have Medi-Cal, employer-based health insurance, or health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.
