The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the US has risen to 105, after two infections were announced in Georgia.
At a late night news conference in Atlanta, Governor Brian Kemp said both patients are residents of the same household, and one of the individuals with the virus had recently traveled to Italy.
The patients are now in isolation at their home, Kemp said. The test results were confirmed by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The two confirmed infections are the first in the state of Georgia.
There are now 12 US states with either presumptive positive cases, or cases of the coronavirus confirmed by the CDC.
