NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the new coronavirus outbreak (all times local):

12:15 p.m.

U.S. health officials updated the nation’s count of coronavirus cases to 91 on Monday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the count includes 45 infections among people who were on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, which is one more than previously reported. It includes people who tested positive after returning from travel to outbreak areas in other parts of the world, their close contacts and what appear to be infections from community spread — people who did not travel and did not have known contact with other infected people.

Seventeen of the U.S. cases have been hospitalized, and two have died.

Ten states have reported cases.
