      1. Thanks for this! Your coverage has done a very good job, but that kind of more granular info was what I was hoping for, so I appreciate you pointing it out.

  1. Massachusetts reports that more than 600 residents, including one “Boston student,” have self-quarantined at home after China travel to be monitored for the virus, with almost two-thirds found to be healthy.

    What about the remainder one third? That is still about 200 people?
