The person is the spouse of another Diamond Princess evacuee, who arrived in Omaha for monitoring and treatment last week.
This patient is scheduled to arrive at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield tonight local time.
Their arrival brings the total number of people monitored at the University of Nebraska Medical Center to 15, according to the statement. Thirteen people have tested positive for the coronavirus while two people remain negative.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed 53 cases of coronavirus in the US.
