With U.S. Navy fleet concentration centers located in Pacific countries reporting outbreaks of the coronavirus, the service has started screening personnel, dependents and base visitors for the disease.

As of Sunday, the majority of the 78,811 confirmed coronavirus cases were in China, according to the World Health Organization. However, South Korea, Japan and Singapore reported a substantial number of cases. All three countries host significant U.S. Navy facilities. In Korea, the virus’ spread is concerning enough for the government to raise its infectious-disease alert to its highest level, according to the U.S. Embassy in Seoul. https://news.usni.org/2020/02/24/navy-steps-up-coronavirus-screenings-for-pacific-deployed-personnel-dependents-and-visitors
