There were 2,103 new confirmed cases in hardest-hit Hubei province on Monday, bringing the total infected to more than 16,480. The patient is now being monitored and has a travel history from Wuhan in China, which is reportedly the epicenter of the outbreak.

"In response to the shortcomings and deficiencies that were exposed responding to this epidemic, we must improve our national emergency management system and improve our abilities in handling urgent and unsafe tasks", the report said.

Currently, there are six cases of the novel coronavirus in California, one in Arizona, one in Washington state, one in MA and two in IL. The country has a total of 12 confirmed cases of the infection.

A report on the early stages of the outbreak by the Lancet medical journal said most patients who died had pre-existing conditions.

The UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said that the virus "will be with us for at least some months to come".

It came as the number of confirmed United States cases rose to 11, including the second confirmed person-to-person transmission inside the country, this one involving a patient in California. The quarantines would take place at one of four U.S. military bases.

Another 5,173 new suspected cases were reported on Sunday, said the Commission.

In addition, the administration said that any Americans who had visited the Hubei province in China, where the disease originated, in the past 14 days will be quarantined, and screening and self-quarantines will be required for any Americans visiting other parts of China.

The CDC ordered a federal 14-day quarantine for those passengers - the first such order in more than half a century.
