More cases of coronavirus could pop up for people evacuated from a cruise ship to Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Rear Admiral Dr. Nancy Knight with the Centers For Disease Control says new cases would not be surprising since Diamond Princess evacuees were in a high risk environment on the cruise ship. There are six confirmed cases of coronavirus with all quarantined at Texas Center for Infectious Disease on San Antonio's South Side. Five of the patients are from the cruise ship while the sixth was evacuated from Wuhan, China where the virus originated.
