(WJW) – The CDC reports person-to-person cases of the coronavirus in the U.S. have increased.

There are more than 100 coronavirus cases in the U.S., the Associated Press reports. There are now nine deaths — all in Washington state.

Eleven of the cases are considered person-to-person, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

We want to emphasize, as of the Ohio Dept. of Health’s 2 p.m. Tuesday update, there are no confirmed cases in Ohio.

There is one person under investigation and awaiting test results. Seven people have tested negative for the virus.

New details on virus impact

  • Death toll rises in Washington State, 9 dead, mostly at a nursing home
  • WHO reports 90,993 cases around the world, 3,111 deaths
  • Feds cut interest rates due to “evolving risk” from virus
  • Japan’s Olympic minister is discussing moving the dates for the Tokyo Games to later in 2020
  • France has seized all protective masks in order to ensure there are enough for virus patients and protective workers

Editor’s Note: The CDC only updates its case information Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, so there will likely be discrepancies in numbers between that agency and the WHO.
