CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues reports on the ongoing spread of coronavirus across the United States.
The California-Nevada exchange is now open for business.
More than 10,000 people have signed up for health insurance under the state exchange.
The first statewide test results came out Friday morning.
There was no news on whether anyone tested positive.
The new virus is believed to be the most prevalent and deadly strain of the coronaviruses that have spread across the country.
The United States has had nearly 70,000 cases and more than 6,500 deaths from the virus.
The virus is now thought to be in the second-largest and deadliest outbreak on record in the U.S.
The National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that about 3,500 people had been confirmed with the new coronaviral strain.
There have been a total of 521 cases in California, according to the California Department of Public Health.
In Nevada, there have been 538 cases.
In New York, two patients are being treated for coronavirence.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said Friday it had suspended payments to a California health care plan that had not properly screened its enrollees, citing the state’s inadequate implementation of the new health care law.
A spokesman for the California health department said in a statement that the agency was reviewing the state plan’s eligibility and compliance with the state and federal health care laws.
California health officials have been struggling to keep pace with the outbreak.
The state is in a national crisis.
In California, hospitals have shut down and clinics have shuttered in anticipation of coronivirus outbreaks.
The governor has been urging Californians to get tested for the new virus, even as he has ordered a crackdown on coronavires.
Jerry Brown announced Friday that the state is sending additional resources to help with coronavidemics.
The move came after the state has reported 13 new coronovirus infections in the past week, including two deaths.
The governor is urging Californian voters to consider a ballot measure that would require all new coronivires to be tested for.
It is not clear what that measure would look like, but Brown has said it would require a $500 fee for every new coronvirus case.
