The South Bay has ten confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus.

The State of Michigan's Department of Health and Human Services has announced 12 new cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed Tuesday, upping the number of cases statewide to 65.

Barbara Ferrer, Los Angeles County Public Health Director, said the rate of increase comes as no surprise. As with all new cases, Ferrer explained that those individuals are now isolated as are their close contacts. To date, LA County Public Health said it has identified 94 cases total; of these.

If patients do not have health care providers, they may call the Lawrence Douglas-County health department's coronavirus line, 785-856-4343.

A spokesman for the Will County Health Department would not release the name of the hospital where the patient is now isolated.

"We are in daily contact with this individual to monitor their symptoms and ensure they are receiving support to be able to isolate at home", said Erica Bergstom, public health officer. "However, we are very fortunate that the L.A. County system of hospitals and clinics is well prepared for emergencies such as these".

The state also confirms only one Jackson County resident has tested positive for the virus. The 5-year-old is also recovering at home.

Additional information on whether the virus was travel-related, as well as gender and age of the person infected, is not immediately available. "It will definitely take some time".
