There are now nine coronavirus related deaths across the United States and more than 100 people diagnosed as the virus continues to spread. Cases have shown up in a few new states, including North Carolina. But in New Jersey there are still no confirmed cases.

According to the Governor’s Office, test results came back negative for the latest person under investigation. Gov. Phil Murphy announced late Tuesday that the state will test an additional 10 to 12 people. It comes as a result of broadened criteria by the Centers for Disease Control. Correspondent Joanna Gagis has the latest on New Jersey’s response.
