California monitoring 8,400 people for coronavirus, awaiting test kits

Feb 27 (Reuters) - California Governor Gavin Newsom said on Thursday that health officials are monitoring 8,400 people for coronavirus symptoms after they arrived in the state from domestic commercial flights.

The state currently has only about 200 test kits, an “inadequate” number, but has been in “constant contact with federal agencies” that will be sending a significant number of new test kits in coming days, Newsom said. (Reporting by Hilary Russ, Editing by Franklin Paul)
