Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense issued an updated COVID-19 information message on Friday, announcing that someone who visited the State of Hawaiʻi in January and February has come down with the coronavirus since returning to Japan.

The patient and his wife visited the island of Maui from January 28 to February 3, then traveled to Oahu, where they stayed until flying on February 7 back to their home in the Aichi Prefecture of central Japan, the officials said. Officials are looking for those who had face-to-face contact with the man.

Hawaiian officials are on high alert after a recent vacationer tested positive for the coronavirus after returning to Japan, reports said.

Hawaii Department of Health's state epidemiologist, Dr. Sarah Park, said the man likely contracted the coronavirus before or en route to Hawaii.

State health officials said they were consulting Japanese authorities to get more details of his Hawaii visit.

He is from Japan's Aichi Prefecture.

"Our focus at this point is to try and understand who potentially this person may have had close, prolonged contact", Park said, adding that they're concentrating on his whereabouts while on Oahu because that's where he developed symptoms. The incubation period is believed to run between 2 and 14 days. Japan is among the nations hardest hit, with 251 confirmed cases, majority on a cruise liner quarantined in a port.

So far, only 15 USA cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed, and no deaths. All but two of the cases were in people who had traveled to Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the global outbreak. The remaining two were spread from travelers to their spouses.
