Woman tests positive for virus after release from quarantine

SAN ANTONIO (AP) – Leaders in San Antonio are asking for more patient testing for the new coronavirus before a group of quarantined people are released in the city. More than 120 passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship are set to be released Monday following a two-week quarantine in San Antonio. Another person who had been evacuated to San Antonio from China was released from quarantine after she had two negative tests. But after her release, a third test came back as “weakly positive.” Officials say the woman visited a shopping mall and hotel before she was returned to isolation.
