70 additional US military medical personnel head to South Korea, official says


About 70 additional US military medical personnel will deploy to US installations in South Korea, a military official said. 

Their main mission will be to help test military personnel, their dependents and contractor personnel once test kits arrive from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, several officials say it is still not clear when those kits will arrive even though the outbreak in South Korea has grown in recent days. 

The medical personnel will provide clinical care and laboratory support and help identify personnel that have been exposed.
