The first US evacuee from China known to be infected with the Wuhan coronavirus was mistakenly released from a San Diego hospital after an initial test found the person had not been infected, local health officials said Monday.

The patient arrived in the US last week at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar on a State Department flight from Wuhan, China, and was hospitalized with three others after showing possible symptoms of the virus. After an initial CDC test showed all four patients did not have the novel coronavirus, they were released Sunday and returned to the 14-day federal quarantine at Miramar, the University of California, San Diego Health said in a statement.

“This morning, CDC officials advised San Diego Public Health that further testing revealed that one of the four patients tested positive for (novel coronavirus),” UC San Diego Health said in a statement. “The confirmed positive patient was returned to UC San Diego Health for observation and isolation until cleared by the CDC for release.”

The initial quarantine period in the US was 3 days. The CDC quickly changed it to 14 days. Based on hard evidence from outside China, the incubation period could be 24 days. It is almost like the governments around the world want this to spread.

What do you say to someone who loses a relative based on an “error”? “I’m sorry” is no longer acceptable.
