    Jared Evans, a football player among the 195 evacuees, said in an interview Thursday night. After dinner, Jared Evans said, most people head straight to their rooms. Jarred Evans, a professional football player in China, is one of the Americans evacuated from a Chinese city at the center of the deadly coronavirus outbreak. ( AP Photo/Patricio Espinoza) They were flown out of Wuhan, the Chinese city at the epicenter of the outbreak, on Wednesday and while on the base have been given blood tests and nose, throat and mouth swabs. Most of the virus cases are in China, but the outbreak has spread to more than a dozen countries, and the World Health Organization declared a global emergency Thursday. The U.S. has advised against all travel to Chinaand on Thursday confirmed the countrys first case of person-to-person spread of the virus, a man who is married to a Chicago woman in her 60s who got sick after she returned from a trip to Wuhan. AMERICAN AIRLINES LATEST TO CANCEL ALL FLIGHTS TO CHINA AMID CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK One person tried to leave the base Wednesday night and Riverside County officials ordered the person quarantined for two weeks unless medically cleared before then, said Jose Arballo Jr., a spokesman for the countys public health agency. That means the unidentified person must remain with the group on the base, he said. Jose Arballo Jr. said early Friday that none of the passengers had shown signs of the illness but that Jose Arballo Jr. was about to go into a briefing for an update on the evacuees health. The evacuees are staying in hotel-style housing on the base and spent time Thursday exercising in a grassy area, some wearing masks, Jose Arballo Jr. said. A mobile medical clinic was set up in that area of the base so the evacuees will not have to go elsewhere for medical care if they need it, Jose Arballo Jr. said. Jarred Evans, who moved to Wuhan several years ago to play in a Chinese football league, said Jarred Evans would stay at the base until testing shows Jarred Evans is free of the virus. SIGN UP FOR THE FOX HEALTH NEWSLETTER Before the outbreak took hold, Jarred Evans said people in the city of 11 million people were happy as they prepared for the Lunar New Year holiday season. After news broke about rapidly expanding outbreak, Jarred Evans said residents swarmed pharmacies and stores to buy masks and disinfectant spray. The Chinese government shut down the city banning buses, trains, taxis, and personal cars and the military patrolled some streets and Jarred Evans compared its deserted atmosphere to an Old West ghost town. Imagine New York City being shut down, i was completely scared at first, because I didnt know exactly what was going to happen.
