Two new U.S. cases of the deadly coronavirus that is spreading from central China were confirmed Sunday: one in Los Angeles County, California, and the other in Maricopa County, Arizona.

This brings to five the total number of cases in the U.S.. All of the U.S. patients had traveled to Wuhan, the Chinese city that is the center of the outbreak, according to The Associated Press.
